For editing, I try to keep my photos in 2k resolution. It speeds up everything, especially when I shoot anywhere from 200,000-300,000 photos a year (I'm an event/corporate/wedding photographer in NYC.)

Higher resolution means it slows down your processor and also your graphics card. More heat, more power used, slower rendering. It's not preferred to edit in 4k unless you need to (billboard posters or two-sheet spreads in a quality magazine) + you have the eye to recognize the resolution. I run a 1080Ti card on an Intel 4.0Ghz Octa-core with SSDs and 64GB DDR4 RAM, and rendering Nikon D850 files takes a few seconds in LR at 2k resolution.

I'd take a 2k monitor with 99%+ Adobe RGB + SpyderPro over a 4k with 60% Adobe RGB. (Even though pretty much most people + websites only use sRGB.)
