My monitor is 144hz but only haves HDMI and VGA ports.

A little time ago i bought a Acer KG271C https://www.amazon.nl/Acer-DisplayPort-reactietijd-ZeroFrame-FreeSync/dp/B07B3Y3Q2N/ref=asc_df_B07B3Y3Q2N/?tag=nlshogostdde-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=430623654457&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7185816522900734582&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9067886&hvtargid=pla-564892321343&psc=1

On 1 photo is a 75Hz logo but i thought that was wrong. But the monitor only has VGA and HDMI and on both i cant run on the 144Hz! Is it possible to buy a DisplayPort to DHMI and have the 144hz? Or do i just need to send it back and buy another 144Hz monitor?

HDMI can do 144Hz. Made sure you set it to 144Hz in Windows?

HDMI can do 144hz, but it has to be HDMI 2.0. What GPU do you have?
