Can i game with dvi port?

Yes, of course you can. Displayport is also a good option. Between the three it doesn't matter which you use, as long as you don't use VGA.

An RX 580 will have 2 HDMI's, 2 Displayports and a DVI. Do check what cable comes included with the monitor, usually Dell gives you a displayport cable.

DVI and hdmi are very similar .

but why you don't use display port ?


Why I die when I fall into the void?

If you can hear silence, you will know what I am talking about .

The void is not empty it just kills you since you cannot hear it's warning.

If you can hear silence, you will know what I am talking about .

It says:" you need to be in survival mode to know my secret"

If you can hear silence, you will know what I am talking about .

So let's invest in breaking bedrock in survival, instead of killing each other in PvP.

Let's change the world .

use Displayport. it is the supirior port out of all of them (imo, and supported by stats)

It is superior to drive more bandwidth to the monitor, but if it capped at 1080p and 60hz, it would be the same.

 

For OP, the monitor supported all port that the gpu provide, so just pick one.

HDMI is cheap and universally used in tv also, so you may just already have one in your house.
