  1. I tried this, did not work unfortunately. Thank you for the help I appreciate it. My monitor only has 1 DP1.4 Port while having 2 HDMI 2.1 Ports, I did see this as being the case for some other monitors though. I tried plugging in both HDMI and DisplayPort at the same time and it did not work.
  2. https://www.xfxforce.com/gpus/amd-radeon-tm-rx-580-gts-xxx-edition-8gb-4 this is the spec sheet of my GPU, it has DisplayPort 1.4. I am using the cable that the monitor came with, so I am assuming it is DisplayPort 1.4 since the HDMI cable they gave me supports up to 8k. Not sure where to go from here
  3. Shouldn't the display port 1.4 at least be enough to work though? I believe DisplayPort 1.4 supports 4k 144/120.
  4. So let me just start off by saying I am not trying to play games at 4k 144 Hz. I just want the monitor to display at 4k 144hz. I bought this monitor to play on my PS5. I bought a Gigabyte M28u Monitor https://www.gigabyte.com/Monitor/M28U#kfand for some reason I cannot get my monitor to display at 4k 144hz. It only goes up to 4k 60 fps but has options for 1440p 144hz and 1080p 144hz. I have tried both the HDMI and DisplayPort cable included with the monitor and so far nothing has worked. Anyone have any ideas on how I can get this to work?
  5. Hello everyone I am having trouble deciding on which monitor to use as my main monitor. I don't really understand displays that well so I was hoping someone here can help me out. So I currently use a LG 24MP60VQ 24' 1080P (https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-24MP60VQ-P-led-monitor) as my main monitor, and it has served me very well and seems like a overall good monitor. However, I just got an older Dell U2711 Ultrasharp 2560x1440 (https://www.dell.com/ae/business/p/dell-u2711/pd) for free from a friend. I plugged in the Dell using HDMI and the quality seemed pretty bad co
  6. Thank you to everyone who helped me. This forum has been so kind to help me throughout my entire build. Thank you all so much !!
  7. Okay that makes sense. I thought that was the case but I couldn't find anything for sure online. Thank you
  8. I forgot to add the pictures when I first made the post sorry lmfao. But based on what you guys are all saying about the 6+2 connector, and by the picture I have with it plugged in, it's plugged in correctly right? Sorry I am a noob and just want to make sure
  9. Hey everyone so I am almost done with my build, I just need to make sure I plugged in my graphics card correctly then I can go for the first boot. I'm seeing a lot of different stuff online for the graphics cards and pins and it is really confusing me. My graphics card seems to only have an 8 pin connector but I'm reading that some have 2, and some can only be plugged in with 6 pins. I read the manual and got more confused lol. My psu cable is also a 6+2 pin cable If that changes anything. My graphics card is a Sapphire pulse 5600 xt, the dual display port and dual hdmi
  10. Hello everyone I am almost done with my pc build but I am confused about the atx motherboard connector. So I bought a non modular power supply (which I deeply regret, was hard to find anything else at time) and I am trying to connect it to the motherboard but it is split into two pieces (shown in pictures). Every video I've seen so far the cable has been 1 piece so I am really confused. Do I just connect the left over 4 pin connector right next to the 20 pin connector on the slot, similar to how the CPU plug works? Here are some pictures demonstrating what I am confused
  11. Hey y'all so I just started my new build and I accidentally dropped the stock 3600 cooler when I was reaching for it (fell like 2 inches) and some of thermal paste came off. I can't tell if I should I apply more or not (I bought some extra thermal paste) so of someone can help me out I will be very thankful
  12. Hey I just wanted to update everyone thanks for all your help. I canceled the gigabyte order and got the sapphire pulse model instead. I'm happy I did because it's the same price as the gigabyte model without the rebate, and who really has the time to wait for it to come back. I just have to wait an extra day but I think it will be well worth it, and now I have Amazon's return policy instead of Neweggs crappy policy, thank you all
  13. Hey ya'll everyone in this forum has been so kind in helping me with my build, so thank you and bless you all, I am finally ready to purchase my last part. I have already purchased two graphics cards and cancelled them, and cancelled a bunch of other stuff as well but I am finally almost done. So the Graphics card I want to buy is the 5600 XT. I originally purchased the gigabyte windforce model because it was the cheapest, but this forum convinced me to pruchase the Sapphire pulse model instead because it has way better thermals and stuff. But I am confused because the graphics c
