Thank you!The specs for the integrated graphics on your 7700K:
It should be able to easily handle 4K video playback. Now Netflix 4K playback i'm not completely sure of.

Still is it better to get a cheap dedicated video card? Like say a GTX 980 or is something else better?Ignore me. I was thinking of Skylake not supporting it and Intel using the HD600 series since. But actually the integrated GPU on Kaby Lake and later is PlayReady 3 Ready (might even since updated Skylake to support it as well).
So you are fine.
Depends if you are only ever using this as a Stream viewer and not doing anything graphics related outside this then probably not. I would wait till you have something the iGPU can't do and then get a working dGPU then. Would suck to get the 980 now and find out later that neither of them work with something, when you can get by on the igpu now.Still is it better to get a cheap dedicated video card?

Correct. Only the GTX 950 and GTX 960 had the x265 hardware decoder. I bought the GTX 950 for my HTPC project in January of 2016. I also have a GTX 970 that doesn't have it. I currently have a 1080 Ti in my main rig that most definitely has the hardware decoder.I don't believe that the GTX 980 has a hardware decoder for x265 so not a good choice for 4k playback. Nvidia added the x265 decoder block to later GPUs (most 10xx series and I believe GTX 960) - you need to check.
