Dual Monitor Recommendation - 1080 + 4k side by side?

Hello friends,

is it dumb or does it make sense to have a 4k monitor and a 1080p side by side? I need 4k for editing videos and 1080 high 144+ gHz for gaming.

or drop 1k on a monitor that can do both and have a cheapie monitor on the side? I need a second screen.

for your environment i don't see any issue. Since 4k monitor will reduce the scrolling and you can fit more window for video editor app. For programmer like me, it was bad choose for me to get 4k, since i didnt look the dpi when it comes to text (too small to read) forcing me to get another screen. Also, if you like to turn off your screen while it rendering the video, you need to make sure the hdmi support 4k since displayPort will always rest your window when you turn off screen.
