That is mostly monitor dependent, though. Most high end monitors have good scaling algorithms.

With that said, i would never buy a 4K monitor if i planned on using 1440p on it.

Yes, it's a compromise for when gaming is not your main concern. 32" 1440p supposedly still looks quite good though, you just have to up the anti-aliasing a bit. Personally, I see it as a temporary thing anyway, because I'm holding off till the 1080 Ti.
