The one and only purpose for this GPU would be playback of 4K movies from a 5600 rpm HDD to a 4K/60Hz HDR TV screen. No gaming, no Netflix, no nothing else.

Rest of system specs:

· CPU: Ryzen 2600X

· Mobo: ASUS Prime X470-Pro

· RAM: 16 GB of DDR4 3200


Would a humble GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 be up to the task?

Depending on the model of the graphics card, it seems to only be capable of 4k30 unless you happen to have one with a HDMI 2.0 specification. So, while the GPU is capable of 4k60, you wil likely be limited by the output of the connector.

Are you familiar with Plex? You can play 4K movies on your TV without any video card installed at all. It's all handled by the CPU, and yours is more than strong enough to handle transcoding.

I use and love Plex myself. Along with a great many other members on the forum.

Nvidia says GT 1030s have HDMI 2.0b connectors:
