    Best displayport cable for Acer Predator X34?

    Looking for a 10ft cable that wont give me any issues running from my titan x sli setup to this monitor please. I was looking on amazon and cable matters brand seems worrisome with random issues.

    I'm looking for a cable that's 1.2 and can handle the 3440 res at 100hz.

    Hi Lynkdev,

    I got a tip from a cable junky friend that does a lot of home entertainment room creations. I'm sure he told me they will even make custom cables to your specs, he sent me here for my Dual Link DVI-D Cable. I needed this link for the 144Hz refresh on my VG248QE monitor. I chose DVI over DP based on reviews for my particular setup.

    Best regards,

    thanks Osiris, are you saying DVI-D is better over DP or just for your setup? I have two titan x's in SLI feeding my Acer Predator X34 which is running at 100hz max. Would I lose anything swapping to DVI-D?

    I have a Accell 10ft DP one currently which is ok, it just gives me a black screen about once or twice a month coming out of sleep mode. Fix is just to turn on/off the LCD but that is a drag on my clean ride, if you know what I mean.

    Hi Lynkdev,

    Wow, I guess I should have learned more about your gear. That's a very nice Monitor. All good. If my quick research is correct, your Acer Predator X34 only has two inputs. 1 x HDMI and 1 x DP. I'm not a tech guru. I have yet to wade into the pond of SLI or Crossfire setups. I'm not sure about cable adapters used between the GPU cards output and Monitor input. Put simply, The monitor I have listed in my forum profile will only achieve 144Hz refresh using a DVI cable. So yes this is for my specific setup/gear.

    If I had not read about the fact that for the ASUS VG248QE monitor and the HDMI 60Hz cap, I would have never known, to really get that 144Hz refresh I need to use the DVI DL connection. Again. For my specific setup.

    Links that got me there are linked for you as well. This current build I have is replacing my rig from six years ago. Back in the glory days of the AMD Phenom II Black Edition Six cores. And it's still alive and well.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131646

    I had to relearn all of this tech info. Only linking it because it really helped me out to remember the basics most take for granted. Regarding the GPU and Monitor connection cabling options.

    Well met,

    Osiris
