    Do I need a discrete GPU?





      I am trying to build a desktop PC that I will be using mostly as a home workstation (e-mail; Word; Internet; Adobe Acrobat; Photoshop). I also need it for 4k video playback (TV or monitor).


      Taking into consideration that I do not game, will be an Intel CPU with HD Graphics 4600 (H-Line) sufficient to process 4k video at 60Hz refresh rate? I mean can I do without a discrete GPU?


      The idea is to save some money but still keep an opportunity to install a discrete GPU later if required. My research shows it is possible but since I am new to the stuff, I'd like to be sure that I get it right.


      Thank you for every piece of advice!
