I am pretty sure because I dont even know what it is. Regardless, everything AMD related has been deleted and uninstalled.

Your monitor is then going to hunt for inputs. That's a display port feature and a Windows and monitor issue to resolve in the power settings of both. If you can't work that out, use an HDMI cable.
I've seen your main problem when over/under-driving a monitor. Make certain you set the correct monitor resolution and refresh rate
Make certain your motherboard's onboard IGP is disabled in your UEFI/CMOS and it is disabled as a device in Windows.
As it is, with a single link DVI, you're only going to get a widescreen max of 2098 × 1311 or 1915 × 1436 at 4:3, both at 60Hz.
Is it all still a mess at these resolutions or less with the DVI-D Single adapter?
It's my understanding that the GPU's HDMI port should translate directly into a DVI-D Dual-Link port on your monitor via a good quality [HDMI--->DVI-D Dual-Link] cable. Does that not work?
Thanks for the advice, I adjusted some of the power settings, namely setting the time the monitor goes to sleep to the same time the computer goes to sleep. Will see how that goes, didnt really see any other potential changes I could do to the power options which could solve the issue.
The refresh rate and the resolution are set to their optimal levels in the windows settings and in the Nvidia Control Panel. The under-driving problems were caused solely by the cables mentioned and described previously.
My computer has no IGP, only one dedicated display adapter namely the 1080Ti.
I havent tried playing games or watching media files when using the DVI-D adapter, I dumped it as soon as I found out it cannot output the native resolution of the monitor.
I dont have a DVI-D Dual-Link adapter, I only have a single link one which came with my 1080Ti.
I had an hours long live chat conversation with Nvidia Support, unfortunately the issues are still unresolved. My issue has been escalated and I have been exchanging e-mails with Nvidia, the team concerned with the issue is supposed to get in touch with me.
I went to the shop from which I ordered my 1080Ti, they said they can send it back but I am gonna wait and see what Nvidia will have to say or to offer. Sending the GPU away means weeks of waiting-time without the guarantee that the GPU is actually faulty or that I am going to be getting a replacement. Either way, this issue has been getting on my nerves so hard for the past few days that I am simply trying to diverge from it now and just do my best and hope for the best, I have tried everything possible and none of that helped me revolve the issues.
It also seems like an issue experienced by numerous Nvidia users, I was able to find on the net a bunch of threads and videos outlining the issue and users complaining about it, I am experiencing the exact same problems just like many other people. There are threads worth of hundreds of pages both on Nvidia and Linustechtips describing the exact same issues and being unable to resolve them.NvidiaLinusTechTipsYoutube:Video1Video2Video3
The GPU's operating temperatures are proper, 84 degrees Celsius, like in all the benches and tests found on the net.
Will see how all this works out, if Nvidia wont be able to help I am giving back my GPU so that they can send it back and see what will happen, either same card back and the retarded "nothing is wrong with the card" type of result or I am going to get a replacement card. At this point I am not over-thinking the matter and going with the flow. Not even going to go as far as some other people went and start adjusting negative LOD clump levels, the card should be working properly without all that, in fact it should function properly right out of the box.
These typical PC issues which occur on a regular basis is what is putting me off lately from all the gaming, posting and following the PC scene. By far the most awful experience I had so far with a computer component, and all thanks to Nvidia. What is even more idiotic is that AMD still has nothing better to offer after 3 entire years since I bought my 290X. If it wasn't for the extremely slow innovative and progressive process of AMD, I could have bought a better AMD GPU instead and evaded all of the crap I am having to deal now with Nvidia.
