Is Maximus IV GENE-Z compatiable with 120hz via hdmi 1.4?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, thanks the help and for reading my first post smile.gif I built my first rig last week. I used a tj08-e case and a gene-z, everythings more or less complete, cable management with the tj08-e case is good and it's a cool looking thing, just got to save up to add a new graphics card and monitor now.

I'm looking at 120hz monitors but I've read in a few places you need a dual dvi link to achieve it. With the gene-z only having a hdmi 1.4 output am I limited to 60hz gamming or could I achieve 120hz using a HDMI to DVI-D adapter? also could I get 3d with the 120hz this way to?

cheers

Why in the world would you buy such an expensive case and motherboard to not be able to afford the video card. More than likely you cant run to 120fps off of onboard graphics anyway.

I only had so much money at the time and was very eager to see the parts and start putting it together, I'll be getting the video card in a couple of days. I've only used the onboard graphics for setting up windows so its ready.

do you mean I can connect the video card I'm getting to the monitor? if so I never knew as I thought the monitor had to be connected to the motherboard, this makes things much easier.

thanks

Yes, the video connection on the motherboard is for the onboard graphics card. When you buy a dedicated video card it will have connections on the back.
