HDMI to DVI questions with a MSI GTX 660 ti

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an MSI GTX 660 ti with two AOC monitors hooked up via DVI. The two monitors look great and work well together.

I bought a third AOC monitor and a rocketfish HDMI to DVI from bestbuy (just so i could have it same day) The HDMI to DVI did not work and there was no display. I tried different DVI cables and all three monitors.

So i was looking at office max, and they have these cables ( I want it today, no online ordering ) Should one of these work?

Or is this an issue with the video card on displaying the HDMI to dvi right?

EDIT: I also did try a straight HDMI to monitor and it worked in a 3 display setup, though i want the monitors to match, which is why im going through all this trouble.

Just stick with the native HDMI connection. There is basically no difference between the two with the monitors you are using. Whether HDMI or HDMI->DVI conversion, the picture will be exactly the same. If you're OCD about them all using DVI cables in particular, well I can't really help too much with that...

Sorry, the last one that i used that was HDMI was a different monitor. The three i have that match each other, the HDMI one does not.
