    Just picked up a new 1660 ti and the card that I got doesn't have DVI.... and my monitor only has 3 dvi in ports.... So I bought a HDMI to DVI converter.

    its been a while since I had a Nvidia card. So I have to force the 2560x1600 resolution but when I do this, everything is OMG super blurry, like beyond readable.

    I'm I screwed? can I fix this so I can still use this monitor? I like my gpu and my monitor but I dont want to have to buy a new monitor or find a gpu with dvi.

    will a display port to dvi work better?

    please help!

    I was in the same boat as @AQNFX, except my GPU was fine... £500+ later I had a RX Vega 56 & a 4K 28" monitor, which I'm running via Displayport.

    What does the DVI part of the converter look like compared to the below...

    Probably a DVI-D Dual Link is what you need, second from bottom. Check the DVI connections on your monitor first though. I think It's this dongle I use on my GTX 1070 so I can hookup a second HDMI through my TV. Produces a 4K resolution at 30FPS which is my TV limit, with no problems. Might be a DVI-I though, I'd have to double check my setup here!
