    Graphics Card (DVI-D Out) to Monitor (DisplayPort In)


    Hi guys

    With help from @muchomurka , I have managed to build a PC centred around some old parts I had - P5K Deluxe Wifi mobo, Intel Core 2 Q6600 (G0 version), 8 GB ram and a Graphics card. This graphics card is a GeForce 8600 GTS Silent Fanless HTDP 256MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - see pic attached and the link below it.


    Graphics Card (DVI-D Out) to Monitor (DisplayPort In) [​IMG]


    Asus P5K Deluxe WiFi Motherboard

    I bought a cheap monitor on the bay, a HP EliteDisplay S231D. It seemed excellent and it is. However I wanted to connect one of the 2 DVI-D ports on the Graphics Card to the monitor which was advertised as having a DVI-D input socket. The monitor, when it arrived didn't have one of theses, rather a DisplayPort. Having bought a DVI-D/DisplayPort cable, I have quickly realised that the cable only works one-way, it is not bi-directional. If the Graphics card had a DisplayPort and the monitor a DVI_D port, then it would work but it does not, the other way round.

    The monitor cost me only 59, less a 5 refund for the 5 cable (due to the incorrect advertising) and connecting from the Graphics Card using a DVI-D to VGA adapter which I have, to the VGA connector on the monitor, the picture looks quite good indeed, I must say. The mobo has its own sound system, so am not bothered about sound to the monitor - it only has pass-through anyway.

    My question is: -

    Is there a cheap way of connecting a DVI-D (OUT) to a DisplayPort (IN). If so, would I experience even better picture quality? I am aware that VGA signals are Analogue, whereas DisplayPort and DVi_D signals are Digital.

    I could return the monitor - it's a 22" with a max resolution of 1920 x 1080p (which matches the Graphics Card) but I believe I would have to pay a lot more for one with a DVI-D port.

    Hope someone can help

    120hz Monitor, HDMI or DVI-D cable?

    I believe HDMI for graphics cards is slowly on the way out. I currently use DVI-D for one monitor (simply because it doesn't have displayport) and displayport on the gsync enabled monitor. I think displayport will prevail and become defacto.

    The DVI-D monitor is set to 144Hz and the displayport one is set to 165Hz.

    120hz Monitor, HDMI or DVI-D cable?

    Yeah. I've been using DP for a while.

    I am not overly fond of DP connectors, though. They don't seem to make very positive connections. I've disturbed mine just by poking around with other cables on the back of the PC. The old VGA and DVI cables were a bit of a pain, but they stayed put once screwed down.
