Here you go, Ken: https://www.cdw.com/product/NVIDIA-Q...B-RAM/3664066?
Edit: This card only has mini-display ports and DVI support, which is probably not going to work for you with no hdmi. You would have to deal with that as well.
I have not used this card personally, though. Considering the expense for such a card and the fact you can get a 4K bluray player for $90--https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-up875-4k-ultra-hd-3d-blu-ray-player-black/5979504.p?skuId=5979504 that does 4K HDR and Atmos, it seems like overkill to mess with a computer and also having to buy 3D player software and then getting it to work, which can be a mystical experience, trust me
. I can't vouch for the LG, but it gets good ratings and it sure is cheap.
The UHD51A offers the advantage of full frame-packed HD that a bluray player can produce. The UHD50 does not and requires a PC to drive it. That said, you can only pass SBS or Top/Bottom to the UHD50, so your PC player software would have to read the bluray and down-scale it to SBS or T/B. You would be better off going with the Benq HT2550, which supports full 3D HD and is the same price as the UHD50. That said, HT2550 users have found a problem with using 3D as it can't sync properly with DLPlink glasses. Benq has said they are going to fix that in firmware release soon, though. Lots to consider here. I personally am going to wait for the UHD51A.
