  1. That's totally unnecessary, just use a DisplayPort to VGA adapter.
  2. The HDMI standard is determined by the CPU. All the CPUs on that socket support HDMI 1.4a, which will support 1440p 60 Hz.
  3. Yup, probably not.
  4. TV content will be upscaled to 4K, it will look probably the same as it does on your 1080p TV.
  5. Not all active adapters require a separate power cable, some connectors (like DisplayPort) can deliver a small amount of power inline, so low power adapters (like DisplayPort to VGA) don't need USB power. Whether it's active or not just depends on the type of plugs in use. HDMI and DisplayPort don't support passive VGA adapters, so they will always be active. DVI-I to VGA adapters are passive. DVI-I to VGA is the best option, but if you can't free up that port then DisplayPort to VGA is the next best option.
  6. Not sure, it just happens sometimes with DisplayPort.
  7. Try disconnecting the monitor from power for a minute to reset it.
  8. You shouldn't need to enable dual graphics to use the integrated GPU and dedicated GPU at the same time. That isn't what dual graphics is for, it's for running them in CrossFire so they work together on the same image.
  9. ULMB is only on G-Sync monitors AFAIK. I don't think ASUS's FreeSync monitors have any equivalent.
  10. "Dual Graphics" means AMD CrossFire between the integrated GPU and the dedicated GPU. That option won't be available with an NVIDIA graphics card, it will only work with some older AMD cards like the 6850. Just get a DisplayPort to VGA adapter, they're only a few dollars.
  11. All HDMI versions are compatible with each other, it will work fine, but only up to 4K 30 Hz. No one makes these converters. People only make DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 converters, not the other way around.
  12. Threads merged. Don't multi-post in several sections trying to get more replies please
  13. Yes, that should work.
  14. Wouldn't recommend the XL2411Z for you since it doesn't have DisplayPort input. It does have HDMI but only goes up to 60 Hz on that. You would need to use Dual-Link DVI for it.
  15. Dell U2414H?
