Win Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 graphics cards - Perfect for low cost budget 4K HTPC
If you are using madVR, 4K UHD playback will use around 2GB of VRAM with normal playback with the default video processing settings. Some manage to go over 2GB by changing only a few settings. It is just safer to have the extra VRAM to avoid any potential stuttering because you can easily go over the 2GB limit. Overall performance, on Windows at least, can be much better with a 4GB card. A 3GB card also offers plenty of headroom.

But, yes, just decoding and playing most video can be handled by not adding any unnecessary processing. The madVR control panel has a bunch of settings that eat up available memory. Use the 2GB wisely...
