Mac mini supports 4K only over Mini DisplayPort, right? Then you will need an active adapter, like this (http://store.apple.com/us/product/HFQL2VC/A/moshi-mini-displayport-to-hdmi-adapter-4k).

I forgot to mention this classical method of getting full RGB from NVIDIA GPU: create a custom resolution in NVIDIA Control Panel. I am not sure if this works with XP, however.
