Dumb question about different cable connections to hook a PC to a Monitor

4,306 1,574 January 5, 2018 at 06:05 PM
Ok I have this PC and this monitor.

The PC has hdmi, display port and DVID dual output.

The monitor has hdmi and VGA.

I have a 15 foot display port to hdmi cable, but it says "support display port 1.1a input and hdmi output". -Does it work in the other direction?


Is this the best option or should I buy a newer hdmi cable and just go hdmi to hdmi?

I do have an alphaline 12 foot hdmi cable with 4k support, 1080p resolution, 17.8 gbps, audio return channel, 24k gold plated connectors (but I do not know what specific version of hdmi it is. I'm assuming 2.0).

Either cable should work.
