Hi
I want to purchase a Lenovo ThinkVision Pro 2840m 28" 3840x2160 monitor but my PC does not support the resolution.  What graphics card do I need?  My PC is a lenovo M58 type 8910 Model ADG.

i use Windows 7 and would prefer not to change. I only want to use lots of  text on the screen so I dont need a gaming card..I think.

There will be trouble finding a card that fits this system.  According to the Lenovo specs, this system has only one available PCIe slot, and it is half-height half-length.

One half-length, low profile-height, PCI Express x16
One full-length, low profile-height, 32-bit PCI 2.3 (5v)

This is a poor situation for installing an expanded resolution video card.  I can not find a low profile card, either Radeon or Nvidia, that does this resolution.  The best available appears to be 2560 x 1600.

low profile, 4k support over display port
