I don't see any online reviews about this monitor and Resolution is FULLHD 1920X1080(worried about pixelated display)

If you sit even remotely close to a display that big, you're going to be able to see the pixels very easily. Your display becomes 'Retina' (i.e. unable to see the pixels) at 50 (4 feet 2 inches) inches away, with a PPI of 68. I personally was uncomfortable with a PPI of 89 at about 18 inches (1.5 feet) away from my old monitor. It may be better if you buy a higher resolution 60Hz monitor instead if you need such a big display. What will you be using this monitor for, on what PC specifications? There's no use buying a 144Hz display if your PC can't handle it.

144Hz isn't going to make a difference for coding and movies. For gaming it will, but a higher resolution display will make a far larger difference at that screen size.

Your PC isn't anywhere near powerful enough to maintain 100+ FPS on high quality settings at 1080p. Unless you plan to upgrade your GPU to at least a RX 480 or GTX 1060 (preferably a GTX 1070), you won't benefit from the higher refresh rate. A 7950 isn't going to be able to maintain acceptable frame rates at 1440p either, so it's best that you stick to a normal 60Hz 1080p monitor if you aren't going to upgrade the GPU any time soon.

yeah i know, it's true but i'll change my full system within 3 months. problem is 32 Gaming Monitor with 1920X1080. will it be a good monitor without pixelated issue from 2 to 3 feets. this monitor produce by viewsonic few months ago. but i couldn't find any reviews about the monitor.

I think its better for you to go with VX3209-2K monitor if you plan to use for Coding / Photo editing or Video Editing and less amount of Gaming.

Or even a Dell 2K monitor will be better with better quality. Each type of application needs different type of Monitor.

thanks for reply, yeah true. i have multi purpose for use this monitor, mainly gaming and coding, i was comparing with VX3209-2K and XG3202-C monitor,
 

VX3209-2K PROS - high resolution 2560X1440  CONS - Response Time - GTG:8ms(Type), 10ms(Max) / Colour Gamut 72% of NTSC (Typ) / Refresh Rate - 60Hz

the only issue i see in XG3202-C is 1920 X 1080 resolution, i never tried 1920X1080 resolution on 32 inch monitor, I'm wondering how it's looks on XG3202-C monitor(pixelated issue) and viewsonic mentioned this is a gaming monitor and their newly produced gaming monitors.

Taking a look at the specs, both those monitors seem to sacrifice image quality for size. I do agree though, pixelation might be an issue with both these monitors, unless you sit 5-6 feet away from it.

Update:

Tried the monitor, and I'm having mixed feelings. As I predicted, the picture gets a bit grainy and pixelated if you sit closer than ~4 feet to the monitor (this is personal though - might be different to someone else). I was perfectly comfortable sitting ~4 feet away from it with regard to the resolution. Image quality is decent, but not the greatest. Good enough for a gaming monitor. 144Hz is, well, 144Hz. It works as intended.

Here's the kicker though. This monitor has a pretty intense curve. For it to work well, you need to sit around 2.5-3 feet from it, or else it gets all distorted and weird. You see how this is a problem with the pixelation.

We have one on display at Redline. Feel free to drop by and have a look for yourself.
