So, in case anyone sees this...
I sent the monitor in for RMA. There was no dead pixel, but rather dirt in the panel. They changed my panel instead of giving me a new monitor, which I'm kind of salty about, but we'll see, I don't have it in my hands yet. Bad thing is, the service guy told me that he could not reproduce the problem with the DP connection, so they said I should either try with another GPU or contact the manufacturer of my GPU. So I sent an email to MSI support and I'm waiting for the "screw you" response I'm expecting. The way this whole thing looks, I'll probably have to buy another GPU if I'm to enjoy this damn thing, provided it doesn't give me even more problems. Worst thing is that I don't wanna go NVidia and, apart from the rather expensive Radeon VII, there's nothing REALLY better than the 390x on the AMD side. I mean, +5-10% at best isn't reason enough for me to go 580 or 590. I was really hoping for Navi, but I doubt I'm gonna be able to wait 'til the summer for it. Unless money (or lack thereof) forces me to wait and not buy a VII. Sigh...
PS : Got a response from MSI. First message gave me some general crap about reinstalling drivers and cleaning ports on the card. After I explained that I've tried everything, the guy sent me a shady looking BIOS flashing folder, complete with ATIWinflash and some other stuff that I don't know anything about. I'd appreciate if anyone gave a look.
