Best GPU - monitor connection method?

Postby de Carabas » Thu Mar 07, 2019 9:57 am

I've just had the opportunity of buying a new desktop PC. It involved smoke, mirrors, mis-direction and a little bit of pleading with the family Chief Financial Officer but I now have an i7, 16GB Ram, RTX2070, 500GB SSD based system to setup for Elite (and homework of course).

I needed a new monitor as well as the old machine is going to a daughter's room. The one I now have is an ASUS that does 144Hz. I couldn't justify the Gsync (at least not yet).

My question is, what is the best connection method from the RTX2070 to the monitor for performance? HDMI, Display Port, DVI? Or is there no real difference?

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Simple as that? What no "it depends on what you are doing"? That was easy then :)

Thanks Tor!

You actually don't have the choice with a 144hz display. HDMI and DVI can't go that fast, so it's DP only.
