4k Television used as a PC Monitor...

I'm extremely ignorant as pertains to this subject (though, admittedly, I've spent a few hours looking into it), so forgive me.

I'm going to buy a 4K television and use it as a monitor for my PC. I've read that many 4k television don't support 4:4:4 color subsampling, which can ultimately result in "blurry" text on the screen.

My question is:

Does this matter if my GPU doesn't support full 4:4:4 60 FPS 4k (or is this noticeable without meeting said requirement)?

Like I've said, I'm lost, and I'm sure it's a pretty dumb question, but any help before I buy a television would be greatly appreciated.
