my asus h81m-k has an i3-4160 processor with intel hd-4400 that claims to support 4K display. Alas the board has only dvi-d and vga ports. i use the computer for MS-office application (no gaming). is there a way to add an extension (through onboard pcie-16x v1.0 slot) that will provide a displayport or hdmi-4k interface from the hd4400 for connecting a 4k monitor ? (without the need for a pricey high end GPU card)

I'm very curious to learn where you found information stating that the board supports 4K through it's outputs...? Per the manual, you're only able to go to a maximum of 1920x1200 on both of those output ports. If you're going off of what Intel has published about the processor, you don't have HDMI or DP ports stemming natively from your board's I/O. You're going to have to look into a GT1030 GPU or a GT750.

Mind sharing your full system's specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

[os: win10-pro 64bit, cpu: i3-4160, gpu: intel hd4400, psu:400w, ssd:480gb, 8GB ddr3, motherboard: asus H81M-K] i wasn't clear. as stated, the board has only dvi-d and vga ports. the on-board gpu hd4400 is a chip that claims to support 4k resolution. the question is whether it would be possible to add a silent 0dB card (which one?) to the pcie-x16 slot so that the existing hd4400 will be able to display 4k to a monitor ? (in a perfect world, all that i would need is a data-path on the motherboard from the hd4400 gpu to the pcie-x16 slot and a pcie-card with displayport interface)
