I currently have the 27" Asus Designo IPS 1080p monitor, and it's freaking amazing for both design and screen color. Asus just released their 4K version of that monitor. If I get that monitor, is 4K on a 27" going to be too small if my eyes are 2 feet away from the screen? Can my current hardware support or even display 4K? I have a i5 3570K with an Asus R9 270 GPU.

I used to game on a powercolor R9 270 (with i5 4690 and unknown speed/timings DDDR3 RAM 8GB single stick) at 4K.

It should support 4K. It could do Skyrim (before remaster version) max settings at 4K getting about 30FPS consistently (no overclock).

I don't know about that monitor, but I just got a 49" 4K TV for my new PC.

Your current gpu yes just do not play games on that monitor just stick with the editing side and you will be fine.

Although you might want to upgrade to a Rx 580 so you will not have to worry about anything later.

Personally with what u have gpu wise and the screen size id genuinely go for a 27” 1440p. Something like the asus rog ips. You will always have the benefit of 144hz if u need it. I dont see a worthwhile improvement in 4k at that screen size.
