Looking at upgrading my display to a 4K TV. I plan on upgrading my 4,1's video card (GTX120) shortly, but after shelling out 4-5 k recently on other gear the video card can wait if not essential for being able to use the TV with the stock card in the short term...

Is there any chance of running the monitor at 2560x1440 with the 120 for the moment, or is there a good chance the 120 won't detect the display? (Running El Cap... Also have SwitchResX if necessary...)

2560x1440 is the 27" Apple Cinema Display's resolution. The GT120 is designed to support this resolution natively under OSX.
