Slightly Off Topic - Bare minimum to display 4k?
So I'm toying around with 4k - just bought a TCL S Series TV and I wanted to hook it up to my PC.
Turns out my 8400GS can't quite make the cut on that so I need to buy a new video card.
I've done some light research and the GT710 seems to be the lowest power (20W), lowest cost ($40) graphics card that can output UHD resolution through HDMI.
The purpose of this is 90% web browsing with some occasional youtube thrown in. I'm not expecting to be watching UHD HDR movies on this - I'm going to pick up the XBox One X for that later this year (which will cost more than all of this put together...)
Anyone else care to chime in with a better solution?
This is going into a Dell T20, specs : PowerEdge T20 with 3.5" 1TB SATA HDD, 4GB DIMM, Xeon E3-1225 v3 3.2GHz 4C 84W CPU, DVD, power supply is 300W I think?
The power supply is the main reason I can't get carried away with the graphics card.
