Cheapest GPU for non-gaming 4k work computer (to replace integrated graphics)

I am looking for a very cheap GPU to replace my (integrated) Intel HD Graphics and fix my screen tearing/window lag. I do not need anything fancy as this will not be used for gaming.

Any ideas on what to get? I am trying to achieve 4k @ 60 Hz with a DisplayPort connector but all of the old/cheap cards don't have DisplayPort or some require a bunch of power connectors to run.

I did find the EVGA 750Ti with DisplayPort, but it's pretty pricey (around £75 used, and hard to come across now), and it seems overkill for a work computer.

Thanks!

    The problem with that is that they won't support 4k at 60 Hz with HDMI. It'll only go up to 30 Hz.

    Sorry didn't realise it didn't have displayport.
    The cheapest I could find were the gtx750/r7-260.
