Connections for 2 montors Gigabyte GTX 980

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm getting this this card and have 2 ASUS VS278H monitors to hook it up to, possibly buying a third monitor aswell. Does it matter what I use to hook these up, HDMI or Display port or doesn't it matter? Sorry for the dumb question but I don't have a lot of experience with multiple monitors.

Thanks

Which cards are you getting specifically?

If it is this card, it should be able to support up to 5 displays. 3 on display port, and then 2 other displays.

The standard is you can use two of the three ports from the dvi, dvi, and hdmi. You can't use all three of those at the same time because of the clock generator that runs those displays.
Display ports don't need clock generators, so there is no limits for those ports.

I just read my post and realised I didn't state what card I'm getting....

You're correct thrasherht, it's the one you linked. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1693&products_id=29142

So it won't matter performance wise if I use any of those ports you mentioned?

Nah the ports you use doesn't make a performance difference. The resolution you run is what matters.
