Can the 970 output 4k @60Hz

I read the post and it said It had 4K next to where it says VR Ready near the bottom. I would use it during games but on normal use your fine.

Wow, even Gainward's datasheet doesn't contain the HDMI or DisplayPort versions.  They do advertise the card being able to support 4K.  If they're following the reference, the HDMI should be 2.0 and the DisplayPort should be 1.2.  Both have enough bandwidth to do 4K@30 no problem.  There's some review articles that have 970's running TVs at 4K@60...but running the image vs. actually using it for gaming or other graphics-intensive applications are two different things.  Unsure if you could run 10bit on it.  You want to maybe game with it in 4K@60?  You'll probably need two 970's in SLI.

I want to play less demanding games at 4k like csgo, or some games that don't need a high refresh rate. I'm going to game at 1440p or 1080p because I ordered a monitor that can run 4k @60hz and 1080p @120hz

Also I can't run the 970 in SLI because my motherboard (MSI Z270 TOMAHAWK) only supports crossfire

Well, you'd also need another card to run in SLI if you had that option available to you...that aside, I'd suggest just running CS:Go in 1080p.  You should be able to set the desktop resolution to 4K@60 if Gainward stuck to nVidia reference standards from what I can see.

I play CS:GO @ 4k 60hz. It does 150-180fps @ 4k. Yes it can be done but you want a intel K chip seriously OC'd.

Thank you for the response, but the reference nvidia card runs normal hdmi and displayport. Mine only has minis

Then it shouldn't be a problem. The 970 cranks up and fires @ 100% utilization or close to it when running games @ 4k or even at 1660P. Slightly less for 1440p but it really pushes the card vs. 1080p. Make sure you have HDMI 2.0 cables that can push 18gbps.
