Hi everybody! I have G750JH and I want also get started of building my rig. I don't have a lot of cash for that at the moment but I can buy goods one by one.
Firs thing I wan to start with is monitor. I want to buy Asus Rog Swift PG278Q and I want to use it with my G750JH till I will set up all other stuff I need (pc).
I found that Asus Rog Swift PG278Q don't have HDMI input only DisplayPort and USB 3.0 hub. I know that I need some sort of adapter like HDMI to DisplayPort converter. I also searched in net and find out that usual cable like DisplayPort to HDMI will not work if I put HDMI male to laptop female and DisplayPort male to monitor female. Also I have a thunderbolt port in my laptop so I was thinking may be I can get it to work with it like apple laptop or something like that.
Please help me to find out what is the best way to get everything to work beause I don't have any experience in such connections. And I also don't want a basket of useless cables after an experiment)))

Hi,
your Notebook has the Thunderbolt port that is a Mini Display Port (MiniDP).
You just need a MiniDP to normal DP cable.
The USB 3.0 HUB allows you to connect 1 USB to the Notebook (having less cable around if you move with it too) and having 2-3 for example in the nmonitor.
I've Speakers, Keyboard, Mouse, additional Webcam connected to the monitor so I just have to plug in 1 USB to the pc when I come home with my Notebook.

I've a G750JX connected with MiniDP to DP to my 23" Monitor.

Here's an example (http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Mini-DisplayPort-Adapter-Cable/dp/B002XVYZ82/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1432326638&sr=8-1&keywords=mini+dp+to+dp+1.2)

Have a Nice Day,
BernaOut
