Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

Currently I'm using a dvi to vga converter on my gpu to a vga cable into my monitor.
I hear the best cables to use are hdmi and displayport, but last I tried hdmi it only allowed me to go up to 1920x1080 (my monitor is 1920x1200).
My monitor does not have a displayport input, could I use a display port to vga/hdmi and still get all the goodies of displayport, or will there be a downside?
Would it even make a difference to use a display port rather than dvi to vga?

If you can get 1920x1200 out of the VGA connector you should also be able to get 1920x1200 out of the DVI on the same video card. If its the same DVI connector that the DVI to VGA adapter is on its already running at 1920x1200. They can't run at independent resolutions on the same connector, they are feed from the same VPU.
