    As I did an - uhm - Upgarde I wonder if it makes sense to upgrade the Graphic Card for my sytem too ... specially as there are no low profile HDMI 2.0 Cards availible. Reading confusing Information from AMD (I'm more the AMDType) about HDMI capable of doing UHD without telling wich Framerate ... and - as I have no content at all for UHD now - would the upscaling of the LAV Filter be better as teh TV's?

    On the TV side - ok - now only Pearl is sending in UHD - but it's to be expected to becoame more in the future - will the TV Part of MP be able to handle these?



    Opinions? Hints? Help? :)

    The Cards I'm looking at are these:

    Saphire Radeon r7 240
    XFX Radeon R7 aktive / XFX Radeon R7 passive

    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 750
    Zotac GeForce GT 740

    None ! yet ( for HTPC use ) at least as external GPU
    the next GPU for HTPC , must be ( for me )
    Hdmi 2.0a 4K support
    WITH H265 hardware decoding.

    only intel provide h265 support on IGP and the GTX960 for nvidia.
