Vostro 460 Compatibility with GEForce GTX 950 and GeForce GTX 750i

I have a Vostro 460 intel core i5-2400 3.10GHZ and 16GB of RAM, Quad Core

Not sure of the Power Supply size but I bought this unit in 2011

The BIOS version is A06 last updated 2012. I'm running windows 10 Pro 64bit - which the 460 is not optimized for - so I believe the BIOS version is the latest.

I want to get a 4K screen - probably the P2715Q - so I need to get a new video card.

My question(s) - 1. Will either/both of the above video cards work with my motherboard? I was told the MB needed to have UEFI boot in order to work with them. But I was also told it didn't necessarily. Conflicting advice.

2. Also is my PCI 1.0 slot workable with the PCI-E 3.0 interface these devices have?

3. Has anyone had any BIOS compatability issues with either of these video cards?

As to my motherboard I believe it's the standard MB that shipped with the device
