    so much for 'simple' explanation. Talking fast tech talk lost me near the beginning. Waste of time.

    The best ones are hdmi, usb type c, and display, the alright one is dvi, and the worst is vga, my graphics card has display 1.4 port, hdmi 2.0b port, dvi-d dual link port. I use all 3 of them so I can connect 3 monitors. All of my monitors came with a display 1.4 cable, one of them came with a vga cable and hdmi 2.0 cable, one of them came with a thunderbolt cable, usb to usb c cable, and the final one came with a usb to usb b cable.

  13. Koalt9Playz

    I wanna have my PS4 and PC hooked up to the same monitor
    but I dont have dvi and Im pretty sure my monitor doesnt support DP

    I only have HDMI (Which will be for the ps4)
    and a vga cable

  14. Leaf Dumm

    Can I maximize refresh rate if I have DVI-D(Dual Link) in my GPU to DP (monitor)? Given that I have a 144hz monitor

  15. Melara

    I occasionally use VGA backup, whenever I have a knucklehead issue with a new monitor or graphics card.

  21. RottenApple__

    I’m watching this for my pc that I bought, and the monitor came today but not the computer 😔

  22. j

    the only good ones is A/V, RF, and HDMI

    My 90's flatscreen tv has VGA and DVI ports, no HDMI. I wanted to connect it to my PC, which ONLY has HDMI, so I can watch Netflix in the living room. I bought a VGA adapter to plug in an HDMI cable from the computer. It works for playing DVD's but not good for internet signal, comes out very dark with black lines across the image. I probably should have bought an adapter for the DVI port instead…

    HDMI is bad, i never ever manage to make a HDMI monitor work right with my PC it doesn't even detect the screen at all. DVI and VGA are instantaneously detected and work perfectly.
