Does anyone know of a monitor like this, with a stand that doesn't take up loads of room?

Monitor arms, dude. Stands are crap. Take back your desk space.

I would not try 4k on a 1070 GPU.

This. I have a 1070 running a 1440p monitor, and it does a great job of that, but I'm not getting the >100 fps I'd need to be confident it'd still run solid at 4k.

1070 was the sweet spot for 1440p. Or at least it was until the new crop of cards came out, and now it's the 2060.

You'd want to go 1080Ti or 2060 at minimum for 4K, or more ideally, 2070.

Rock Paper Shotgun are my bible for GPU decisions.

I think this is the path I will go with. From research, it suggests that this is a good choice.

One (probably stupid) question, my current monitor is a g-sync one and the only one I intend to use for gaming, buying a monitor that is not g-sync (free-sync or neither!) won't cause any problems for this, will it? I'm also wonder if the new one should also be 144hz like my current Predator, I'd take a guess that switching your eyes quickly to different refresh rates isn't too good for you...

No, a secondary monitor won't affect your G-Sync one.

My secondary is just a 1080p 60hz display. For side screen stuff, I don't care much about it being high refresh rate.
