Thinking about a curved 32: monitor, no gaming

I was looking at:

Acer ED323QUR
ASUS TUF Gaming 32" 1440P HDR Curved Monitor (VG32VQ1B)
ASUS TUF Gaming 31.5” 1440P Curved HDR Monitor (VG32VQR)

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Want to stay with a 2550x1440 res

Do you have a budget?
I do not think a curved monitor buys you anything in a size under 40"
For ordinary work, do not chase the high refresh rate monitors. the image quality may suffer. look for an ips panel and a 178/178 viewing angle.
If you can, go see a candidate monitor in person.
Otherwise, look at reviews.
My thought is to buy a large 4k monitor up front.
You can adjust the resolution down if you wish.
Here is a lg 43" unit:

Can you set a 3880x1600 to run at 2550x1440 without loosing anything. In other words would the image be the same as a monitor advertised as 2550x1440 ?

No speakers desired. I have 3 PCs and a KLM switch so HDMI is required.
I want to stay with a 2550x1440 resolution
My cabinet has a small cabinet door on each side. 26 1/2" inbetween.
So a curved monitor is normally not as quite as wide and with the curve a small turn of the monitor and I can access the doors which are rarely used.

I would think you would be OK.
The higher resolution monitor would have more pixels to work with even if you lowered the resolution.
Larger resolution monitors will have smaller native sized text.
But, you can also adjust that with the display settings.
On your current pc, fiddle with different resolutions and text size settings to see what happens.
