HDMI 1.4/CAT 2 High Speed cables can do the job also.  Yes it can…

Rat Face the K always refers to horizontal resolution rather than vertical 🙂 go search for 2K resolution and you’ll find it’s 2048. 2560×1440 is already 2.5K as it’s too high to be 2K

+Brian Su No, its not “always”, can you read?

There’s really no “best”; it really depends on your use case.

For home entertainment devices (TVs, DVD players, consoles, TV boxes etc.) my opinion is HDMI is superior. But for PCs DisplayPort is definitely preferable where available, unless you use your PC mainly as an entertainment device (except gaming), in which case HDMI should be good enough.

VGA or DVI is definitely inferior in many ways and in my opinion should be avoided where possible, except in basic or legacy applications (servers, old projectors, etc.).

DVI or Display Port, if you can Display Port. Im using a DVI Dual Link cable on a 1080p 144Hz 1ms monitor and works perfectly, but the people say that G-Sync is better, I haven’t test it out anyway, but I think it should be better.

Hey man, can i ask a question about displayports judging by your enthusiasm? 😛 I am thinking about getting a monitor for black Friday. I am gonna buy an HDMI input one with built in speakers. However, I have a mini display port and I was wondering if audio will output to the monitor’s speakers (using a mini displayport to HDMI adapter). I know there’s google, but nothing beats a conversation. thanks in advance bro.

mrPlus November 14, 2016 at 2:39 pm

I don’t know really if the adapter will output the sound, but HDMI and mini display port can output the sound by connecting directly.
Sorry my english.

2.0 became the standard version in 2013 I believe. So if it says something like “latest standard”, then yeah it’s most likely 2.0.

Unless you have a 4k display (which I doubt) you can go with anything. Just remember that VGA doesn’t transmit Audio (if you have speakers in your Display) and if you have and want to use a 21:9 aspect ratio go with HDMI 2.0 or Displayport.

Cheapest HDMI cable or DVI or DisplayPort. They are all digital signals so you don’t really have to spend too much. VGA is analog so don’t buy that one unless your monitor only supports VGA. Also if you want your monitor to play sounds, get either DisplayPort or HDMI. DVI doesn’t transfer sounds as he mentioned in the video. If you use a headset, DVI is ok.

I wish DP was more widespread, it’s better than HDMI(except 2.1 for now), and because you don’t have to pay royalties, you can make things slightly cheaper

Your tv doesn’t need 4K 60fps though, so an HDMI cable would work just fine
