Default 4k Monitor Question

Hello, currently I have a PC with a GTX 770 superclocked and an i7. At the moment I am using it with a 27 inch BenQ 1080p monitor using a VGA cable with no adaptors.

In a week or two I would like to upgrade to a 4k monitor, but I checked and they use display port or HDMI, but the HDMI only goes up to 30 hertz and only the display port uses the 60 Hertz so this is the one I will have to use.

I know now that my graphics card has a 1.2 Display Port slot, so I will use that, but the monitor that I want to buy will only come with the HDMI cable which will be cappeed at the 30 Hz , so what 1.2 Display Port cable can support 4k resolution at 60 Hz?
