    Yeah. I've been using DP for a while.

    I am not overly fond of DP connectors, though. They don't seem to make very positive connections. I've disturbed mine just by poking around with other cables on the back of the PC. The old VGA and DVI cables were a bit of a pain, but they stayed put once screwed down.

    But i remember i did read stuff about hdmi not being able to support 120hz, but i also got told its just the other way around. Now the internet seems to be in the same boat as me, since i do only find split answers. Nevertheless hear i am asking for help (again).

    Wich cabel should i use? HDMI or DVI-D?

    Monitor: Asus VG236HE (VG236HE | Monitore | ASUS Deutschland)
    Graphiccard: Gigabyte 970 GTX

    Thanks in advance for the help <3

    If that ain't the right forum for my question, feel free to move the topic as you please

    Cheers Smallfoe

    P.S.: i'm thinking about getting a third monitor .. how exactly am i going to connect them all onto one card? gosh im such a newb
    If you have the option I would use Display Port since it can do 120hz and has higher quality. If not just stick with HDMI it provides better quality video than DVI-D. As for a third display: buy a distribution amplifier. You can get a DA that supports up to 24 displays. The more you add the more $$$ you're gonna spend though.
