The answer involves several factors, which combine to produce all the pixels required. Please first answer:
1. The CPU, amount of RAM, GPU, and drives of the system
2. The model, size, and resolution of the monitor
3. The use: The hardware requirements: CPU and GPU are differrent according to use. If the system is used for gaming, CAD modeling , photo editing, rendering server, or etc.
4. The expected performance: fast navigation in viewports, high gaming fPS with very high quality settings, editing large graphic design files- that kind of thing.
For a better idea of the system capabilities, consider installing and Passmark Performance Test - there's a 30 -day free trial. and list the results, including the CPU / Single Thread Mark
The answers may or may not require upgrading components of the system.
These aspects are a current concern as a secondary office system is having screen tearing on 4K video on a 40" 4K monitor, using a quite healthy specification providing quite good single-thread CPU and 3D performance :

no information on which computer/video card you have or the monitor model you are looking at = no specific help
the shape/size of a monitor does not determine compatibility, the video input on the monitor and the video output on the installed video card is what determines if the two can connect
both video card and monitor must support the interface used
which can be vga/DVI/HDMI/display port depending on the year the video card/monitor was made
do note tha while size of the monitor is not a factor, the resolution is,...and a larger display will usually have more pixels which can require a more powerful video card
