it's the 3840x2160 that makes the older cards not potential
for your requirements -- they're max at 2560x1440 IIRC.

the GTX 16xx are both in the recent supported list for
new drm, but the Radeons are not there (these are Navi
2x GPUs, and new drm only went to Navi 1x.)

i don't know how well they work thought, so if you can
find something older, like geforce 700 series, that is
likely to work better (i have a 730 in one of my systems,
and besides tripping on a libdrm_nouveau assert once --
which mean X crashed unfortunately -- it has been fine.)

my 2c.
