EVGA 1080 SC Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got this card and it is incredible.... My question is more about which cable I should use. I currently have an hdmi cable and a dual dvi cable. I was wondering which cable I should use or if it really matters? I have recently been upscaling games as my monitor only does 1080p native, but I was upscaling with my hdmi cable. Tonight I decided to plug in my dvi cable just to see what 144hz is like. Although I didn't notice a huge difference I did notice something odd. When I was in the settings for the new CoD game I was only able to change the 3d scaling with the dvi and put it up to 4k. When my hdmi cable is in it's a different setting I change to get to 4k upscaling. It allows me to simply change the resolution to exactly that....

I should just keep my question simple but it's a confusing situation due to the settings changing.

Which cable do people recommend for this card with my Benq 144hz monitor? Also should I play in 1440p via upscale or just stick to 1080p native?

I am new to upscaling my games so thanks for any responses.

The setting is Render Resolution. So when the dual dvi link is plugged in I can change that with no issues but I can't change the resolution... but when my hdmi cable is in I can change the resolution all the way to 4k.... So confusing because resolution should just be locked at 1080p correct?

HDMI is superior to DVI, but if you ever get the ability to have DisplayPort, you will find that DisplayPort is superior to HDMI. So, I recommend staying with HDMI. However, if you ever find any reasons for your uses that make DVI better, then you gotta go with what works best for you.
