everything with DP 1.2 should. I would still recommend the gtx 750/750ti

 

such as: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125680

 

or a workstation card should work too if you need single slot

So, the GV-N75TOC-2GL (GTX 750 Ti Low Profile) is my only option, basically, from the NVIDIA camp. That'll output DP 1.2, which I would then have to convert to HDMI 2.0 with CLUB3D's converter, which is out of stock. The cost is basically $125 + $30, and that's a little on the high side. I'm wondering if my best option might just be to get a card that can drive 4K@24/30Hz and just wait for prices to come down and better options to come out, specifically an HDMI 2.0 low profile card. There's no 4K content out right now really, so I'm just set on 4K@60Hz because I'm neurotic.

Thoughts?

I would just use your onboard then which should do 4k at 24/30hz and see how that works for you. The only other option is to get a bigger case that will fit a full height card.

No dice: G3258 only supports 1080p@60Hz via HDMI (and 1600p@60Hz via DP). And no DP on the motherboard, either (though it supports 4K@24/30Hz via HDMI). Getting a bigger case isn't an option because I just dropped $100 on the case I bought, and I'm looking to keep everything small.

Decided to order a Zotac GT 720 2GB (ZT-71201-20L) to "solve" the issue. Supposed to do 4K@30Hz, so really that's the cheapest/best solution I could ask for.

For anyone interested, I went with the Zotac because I've never tried Zotac before (and felt comfortable doing so now) and because it claimed 30Hz at 4K as opposed to 24Hz from MSI.

For those interested in this "solution": with no affordable low profile HTPC-calibre 4K@60Hz cards on the horizon, I went with the stopgap. Hopefully soon we get a low-end 9-- series card with HDMI 2.0/4K@60Hz.
