    So my HDMI port is in use with a VIVE, so i have to use a DP to HDMI cable, but my current one only does 1080p..
    What sort of cable/device do i need to get 4k back again?

    id go the other way... stick the vive on the DP slot using an adapter (works officially, with no issues)

    bare in mind a 4k display over hdmi needs to be at least hdmi 2.0 certified to run 4k @ 60hz

    some displays that claim they are 2.0 certified often have 2 ports, and of the two, only one is usually certified 2.0
