Confused about resolution for new computer

Due to Windows 7 no longer being supported, I put together a new HT computer (let's just say my old one died during the Win7 to Win10 upgrade). I'm configuring the new computer now.

I use my HT computer to watch movies and MKVs, along with serving TV via an HD Homerun Prime.

I'm using an Nvidia GeForce card to output to a Marantz S5010 receiver, which supports 4K. My TV supports 4K, which I watch using FireTV (I have no other sources of 4K).

When I look at the resolution selected by the video card/software, it initially listed1080i, 1920x1080, and a refresh rate of 30Hz. So, I changed this to 1080p at 60Hz.

Is this a suitable resolution/refresh rate? Or should I look into modifying it into a higher rate?

Notice in the nVidia control panel what the native resolution is. When using a 4k chain it should be 3840x2160p. It should be defaulted to that so you shouldn't have to modify anything unless you previously changed it for some reason.

HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
W10 1909 / MPC-BE\HC / PotPlayer / PowerDVD 19 / DVDFab Player 3&5 / KODI 19 videoplayer
GTX960 4GB / RGB Full 4:4:4 / 8bit Desktop mode =60Hz / 10/12bit Video mode = Matched Refresh rates IE 23,24,25,60Hz
