Hello All,

This is my first question on this forum. I come here with lot of hope.

I am currently running below setup but I don't think I am able to enjoy true 4K experience. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Motherboard: GA-B85M-DS3H https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-B85M-DS3H-rev-11#ov
GPU: Intel 4400 (built-in)
Processor: i3 - 4150 CPU http://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/spec/SR1PJ.html
RAM: 8GB
Monitor: LG 27UK650-W https://www.lg.com/in/monitors/lg-27UK650

A major issue that I notice is I am currently running on 30MHz only. There is no option to go beyond it. How do I achieve this?

I want to be able to edit very large HDR pictures and watch 4k movies. What changes would you recommend that I am able to achieve what I want? Should I get a graphics card, if yes, which one?

Thank you all,
Vinay Anand

Ok so technically your intergrated graphics can output - 3840x2160@60Hz but only through display port. It is locked to 24hz over hdmi 1.4 which is what you have access to with your motherboard. Your monitor will accept 3840x2160@60Hz over both hdmi or display port so realistically your best course of action would be to buy and install a cheap discrete graphics card like the nvidia 1030 gt - https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt-1030/specifications

Thank you so much for explaining in detail and suggesting a specific card. I have purchased the one you suggested. It will get delivered today.
