According to my sources (and I have a detailed answer on SU on the subject, including a handy graph and links to a spreadsheet) - 27" is *pretty" darned close to the sweetspot for PC use. I game on a 980TI at that resolution (which is fine) but I've driven 4k60 off much older/less high end video cards. I don't use gsync (which is mainly for gaming) and ...

If you are interested in modern stuff, you won't have a problem. Scaling issues only occur with dated software. So, as long as you aren't trying to run Battlefield 1942 you should be able to enjoy your UHD display.

I'd recommend the GeForce GT 710, a fairly new card aimed at HTPCs as a replacement to integrated graphics. It supports up to 4096x2160 resolution, has a very low profile, and is plenty fast for any video viewing or streaming. The particular model I linked not passive, but should be more than silent enough, especially over the sound anything you're watching....
