What video card does he currntly have? Budget would help, too.

 

I belive since the NVIDIA 580, all video cards could run 4k. (don't quote me on that)

Back in 2014 I was playing games at 4k with GTX 970 in SLI. 

 

Now my current computer I use a GTX 1080ti.

 

Both of these are inexpensive for me.  

 

What would inexpensive be considered for you?

I think a crucial question which hasn't been asked is... what is it going to be used for?

You need to ask him which games, because a $200 graphics card isn't going to be playing any recent games @ 4k (at playable framerates). Even a 1660 Ti ($279) is barely able to get 30fps at 4k in a lot of new games, which would be a miserable experience. For a low budget he'd be better off sticking to 1080p, unless he only plays old games, then it might be ok.

A GTX 1660 is $220 and can't handle 4k gaming (anything new at least)

 

You're probably going to want a RTX 2070 at the very least which are going for $500.

In order of performance (prices taken from Newegg):

 

$200 - AMD Radeon RX 590 (8 GB)

$170 - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (3 GB)

$180 - AMD Radeon RX 580 (8 GB)

$150 - AMD Radeon RX 570 (8 GB)

$130 - AMD Radeon RX 570 (4 GB)

$170 - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4 GB)

 

The RX 590 won't play games at 4K too well.

Oh that's cheeky putting the 1060 above the 580 😋

 

It's dependant on the games you're playing there.

 

Still nothing on this list is even close to being used for 4k gaming at 60fps... you'd probably struggle at 30fps.
