Thankyou, I appreciate the help, if i only have an hdmi port on the back of my computer is there nothing i could do? would an external graphics card work?

There is nothing you can do.

Hello, I have a setup at a different house with the exact same monitor but I used DVI on that one, the problem is, i'm only getting a maximum of 60hz to display, so I thought it must be the cable, so I went out and bought an HDMI 2.0 cable and it still isn't letting me go past 60hz this is the monitor I bought is linked below along with my Pre built PC

The HDMI port on the monitor is limited to 60 Hz at 1080p. You will not get 144 Hz on the monitor's HDMI port no matter what you attach to it.

 

You must connect to the DVI port, and it must be a Dual-Link DVI connection. This can only be obtained from a DVI port, or from a specialized DisplayPort adapter (not a normal DP to DVI adapter).

 

You cannot use an HDMI to DVI adapter or a normal DP to DVI adapter, as these will only provide a Single-Link DVI connection, which will be limited to 60 Hz (even if they claim to be Dual-Link, they are fake.)
