    Hi all,

    I just started a fresh build of Ryzen 5 with Strix B350-F and gonna be throwing probably a GTX1060 in the build, untill I decide to go for 1070 or a 1080...but thats not the question...

    The card I am using now is a 550ti iirc and I use VGA to connect it to the monitor...

    As stupid as it is, my question is which port and cable do you use on modern graphic cards for the best experience? I read that HDMI iirc has some limitations? But not sure if thats rights. Is Display port better? At some point I will be looking to invest in a 144hz monitor as well.

    Sorry for dumb question and thanks in advance for your opinions:)

    You'll want to use DisplayPort for all those 144Hz.
