    Hi guys,

    I want to upgrade my pc to 4k resolution.
    I heard that 4k at 30Hz is not very good, so what are my options for a video card if i want a smooth 60Hz 4096x2160 desktop ?
    I'm not gaming.
    My motherboard is a Gigabytes P67X-UD3-B3.

    thank you and sorry for my english.

    For starters you need a card that has DisplayPort.

    HDMI 2.0 does support 4k/60P as well but caveat emptor, your colors may be crippled due to HDCP.

    thanks newpball.
    so it looks like the GTX 650 Ti BOOST is the cheapest 4k video card with a displayport . Am i right? it's very confusing.

    Note that both HDMI & DP will/should require HDCP 2.2 compatibility (not out yet) on BOTH ends of the chain (source, sink) in order to display 4k/UHD 60p copyrighted work. If it's your own internal/private/personal stuff, or if it is your desktop/apps screen, that won't matter.

    Yeah, that card looks to be the lowest of the nvidia line to support both 4k/60p and DP.
