asus vg248qe 144hz monitor, before i was using a DVI cable but the RTX doesnt have a DVI port so i got an HDMI to DVI converter cable with the HDMI connected on the graphics card and the DVI connected to the monitor, my friend has an HDMI to DVI converter cable and is able to select his refresh rate to 144hz and we have the same monitors

You cannot use normal adapters to connect to a DVI port at 144 Hz. And the HDMI port on the VG248QE is limited to 60 Hz.

 

You need to use DisplayPort.

I just got an RTX 2070 XC ultra gaming graphics card and once i installed it and got all my drivers up to date, i tried setting my refresh rate to 144hz like i always had with my past graphics card (GTX 1070 SC) but for some reason it wont let me change the refresh rate, the only option i have is 60hz and i went out and bought a new 1.3 HDMI chord, that didnt work so i returned the HDMI chord and bought an HDMI to DVI-D converter and it still does not work. i checked to see if my monitor had any driver updates but it is up to date and i dont know what else to do? any help would be appreciated.

HDMI is HDMI, doesn’t matter what cable you have. Only what versions the physical connectors use. DisplayPort is better anyways ;) Go into NVIDIA control panel and see if there are other options.

I would try to use the nvidia control panel to change the setting rather than method you are currently using.

You upgraded from a 1070 to a 2070? Ouch.

 

What you can try to see if the refresh rate issue is down to cable bandwidth is drop your resolution down to something like 720p and see if it'll go above 60hz.

What you need is a dual link DVI cable, which is different from DVI d

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
