Help Me Pick A LARGE Monitor Please

I do buildings engineering CAD work
I spend my work day doing creating virtual 3D models, blueprints and drilling down through menu and dialog boxes, etc.
It would be a huge benefit to have a large panel with lots of pixels to maximize screen real estate



I’m looking for a large format monitor for the office that I will pay for myself so I can’t get too crazy with getting “the best”.

- 40”-ish size range,

- 4K
- Matte finish
- VESA Mountable


3 models seem to fit my budget price range.
-    Acer ET430K wmiiqppx ($799 CAD)

-    LG 43UD79-B ($836 CAD)
https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/...nitor-43ud79-b



-    Dell P4317Q ($729 CAD, open box)
https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/...monitor-p4317q


All seem to have somewhat mixed reviews, but none seem to review terribly.

According to the comments on Newegg, some units of the Acer ET430K seeming to have a known black screen issue (QC lemons?)





My concerns are
- They are all slightly older models (didn’t see anything announced at this size/ price range at CES)
- Screen tearing? Display lag?  These are monitors, so I should be in the clear? 
- As my primary work panel, I’m most concerned about eyestrain.



p.s.
According to my research the Asus GTX1060 3gb can output dual 4k panels.
So I think I’m in the clear here too for a 2nd panel


Hoping you guys can double check me before I pull the trigger
or maybe offer me your thoughts or alternatives I’ve missed.

Thanks!
