I'm getting a new monitor, and I will have to deal with 30hz for a while. Is it really that bad as everyone says ? How will effect gaming, watching videos and the desktop use (word / photoshop)?

It won't effect most videos as most video content is ~30 frames per second. It won't effect photoshop since photoshop does not do much with video.

 

It will effect gaming as it will cause screen tearing without VSync on, whereas it will cap the framerate at 30 when VSync is on.

 

Why are you stuck with 30hz OP?

My graphics card can't handle more than 30hz with my new monitor (4k). I'll have to get some money for the new, better one.

Most LCD cant even do 60Hz or 60FPS its why i still use a CRT, my CRT can do 85Hz / 85 fps and i use to own a CRT that at low res use to be able to do 200Hz / 200 FPS, i know over kill and it was my self id be happy if a IPS LCD could just do 60 fps, sadly most can't.
