Upgrade to 2k monitor, will my PC handle it....

Hi guys,

New to photography. Purchased a cheap £200 PC bundle on ebay for editing. It runs PS and LR great, really fast. However the old PNP monitor @900p is bad. I am missing editing problems due to low clarity, not to mention the poor colour.

I was going to save up for a 5k imac however read lots of issues with imacs struggling to edit in 5k so whats the point.

Can someone tell me in their experience if my system can handle to extra grunt needed as I am looking at upgrading my old PC to run a 27 inch Dell Ultrasharp in 2k 1440p.-

Currently i5 3.1ghz (2400 sandy bridge), 8gb ram 1333hz, SATA drive.

I know ill need a cheap graphics card to have ti 1440p output port, thinking of adding a small SSD drive for the programme storage.
