Well I wondered doing dual display with same video card which will be a gtx 970. One using display port and telling it my old receiver than can't handle 4k as another. And having it set in windows the audio set to hdmi out. Now what really screws me if I end up with a bigger tv instead of the Seki 40 inch that has display port tvs dont have display port at all so then I'd be screwed totally audio wise, no video cards really have dual hdmi outs on them.

And I swear I remember reading once long time ago hdmi can't send signal with just audio, it must by spec send some video signal with it or it wont work. This whole thing is retarded, forcing entire upgrade of everything other wise some part of it gets screwed up quality wise. Beyond stupid.

I would probably be ok with the seki 40 inch but i fell thats its almost to small. I been using a 42 incher for gee 6 yrs now or more. I game its my HTPC I watch and do EVERYTHING via the pc no matter what it is. Music , movies , tv and games.

You actually can, and this is exactly what I'm doing. I have an older non-4K receiver, a 4K TV, and an HTPC with a GTX 960. I'm running an HDMI-to-HDMI cable from the GTX 960 directly into the TV for video, and a DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable from the GTX 960 directly into the receiver for audio. In the Nvidia control panel I set the HMDI sound output to the TV to "Turn off". In the Windows sound devices manager I set the DisplayPort-to-HDMI sound output to the receiver as the default. That way I get native 4K video to the TV and all the HD audio formats bit-streamed to the receiver.

@VBB , this is correct and should work flawlessly!
@hdtv00 , how far are you sitting from the set? 40" is great for a computer monitor but might be a bit (more than just a bit actually) small for a living room set-up.

Well I have it in my living room but its only say 3 ft from me. I wanted it bigger so when I sit across room on the couch maybe. But with it being 2 inches smaller than current display and 4k so basically 4 times smaller text and icons gee, that seems crazy.

How do you like it so far? That's a really nice TV for sure and one I had considered. Also, I hear square trade offers good warranty on the cheap for TV's. A consideration for that brand of TV as they have great panels, but suffer from build quality for the motherboard.
