How do I use my 144hz monitor with gaming laptop

HDMI 1.4 and the resolution of both monitors is 1080p

You can do 120Hz 1080P over HDMI from your laptop. Otherwise would need a MDP to DVI live adapter.

The laptop has HDMI, USB C, and MDP while the Monitor has HDMI and DVI.

I want to use the 144hz refresh rate, what can I do to retain the best quality?

I read somewhere that the only way was to buy a $80-$90 live DVI to MDP adapter.

Not sure if HDMI 1.4 can do 144hz 1080p.  Usually you'd need DVI-D o DP port, or a 75 buck plus adapter.  There are cheaper adapters, iirc, but they won't do the 144hz.

That is correct. HDMI will be limited to 60 Hz.
