Will a GTX670 FTW LE  run a 4K monitor ??? If not Would 2 cards work running SLI?. I don't game at all, just want to have a nice amount of screen resolutions. The monitor is capable of 2160x3840. Any input will be Appreciated.  I'm running a 24 inch Dell now ,until my 4 K comes in soon. This is all new to me.

Yes, one card should run a 4k resolution, though you'll need to use DisplayPort to run it at 60hz, as the HDMI version used on the 670s doesn't have the bandwidth to run 4k@60, only 4k@30hz.

Thanks for the speedy response. Kudos to you  .  Should I go into precision x 16  and do any overclock  If so what should I change it's stock now. Again any suggestions are appreciated. My rig is a few years old. I'm running a Asus p77 pro board with I-7 3770K clocked to 4327mhz. A boot drive Samsung 840 PRO. 238.47 gig's  2 =  1 Tetra bytes WD Black for storage. 16 GIGS of  G Skill 2400 for memory I've had good luck with the PC since I put it together. Any help will be appreciated.

if you want to play games at 4K you will need more GPU performance

Since you said you would not be doing any gaming, you probably won't need to overclock your GPU.  The 760 should handle desktop applications just fine at 4k.

Tweaked is correct, you wouldn't need to overclock your GPU for desktop application performance. Your 670 should handle office applications like word processors and spreadsheets just fine at 4K.

Yeah, you won't have any problem with that.  Keep in mind however that all of those sources will still only play at 1080p.  Netflix and Amazon Prime have to have custom apps which currently only exist in TV's in order to stream 4k content, and as you probably already know, 4k Bluray players aren't yet available.
