    DQ77KB - Displayport or HDMI to DVI Adaptor?

    icetea

      Hi

       

      I was just about to buy a DQ77KB ITX board and i noticed it only has a Displayport or HDMI output and my Monitor is a DVI-D connector.Which is better a Displayport or HDMI to DVI Adaptor?

       

      From what i can gather reading online it would suggest that Displayport is better but it gets very confusing with active and passive adapters plus dual link and single link DVI.

       

      Don't know if this is true but it was suggested to me that the DQ77KB is only Displayport 1.1a and not the latest 1.2 which would mean it is limited in bandwidth so it would be pointless buying a Active adapter.

       

      Thanks
