advice gpu for htpc

Hi folks.I am building a htpc/office use and general browsing pc. My specs are :i5 3470 ,8 gb ddr3 1600mhz ,H61M-DGS R2.0 mobo and 120 gb ssd on windows 10 x64.
I have a strictly choice of 2 gpus: either a r7 240 2gb ddr3 or an asus gtx 650 1gb ddr5.
This will be mainly connected to a 29 inch lg monitor at 2560x1440 resolution(through hdmi), and maybe in the future with occasional hdmi connection strictly for watching 4k movies and online tv.
Which one should i get?Which one is more powerful?
PS:no gaming!:)
