So i am making this post on behalf of a friend, he's new to the pcmr community and still not familiar with the ltt community.

He has a i7 7700k, rtx 2080 MSI gaming x trio, he's using a 27 inch Acer KG271 monitor.

Now the issue he is facing is that he plans to get another similar monitor for a dual monitor setup (i got him hooked on setup wars and he liked the multiple monitor setups)

the monitor only has a hdmi port, his graphics card has only 1 hdmi port and 4 display ports, so will display port (gpu) to HDMI (monitor) work ? Another option i suggested 

was using the hdmi port on his motherboard, not sure if its as good as a direct output from the gpu though.

Basically what i or he wants to know is should he go with the hdmi output from his motherboard or get a display port to hdmi cable ?

 

Thanks in advance for the help :)

Geez, get an adapter for displayport to hdmi. If you use the connector on the motherboard, you're using the crappy integrated graphics and games will run terrible. They are all over the place, and you can get them from newegg or amazon for around $10.

You mentioned an adapter, can i just get a cable ? There are display port to hdmi cables available on amazon, just don't know if they are bidirectional or work one way

A cable would work as well. Most any of these will work, as long as they say (Displayport to HDMI)

"Adapter" includes both adapter cables and adapter dongles, they are the same thing.
