    Question Is it possible to run 165hz, 1440p, 10-bit on displayport 1.2a/hdmi 2.0, and is that much better than 8-bit ?

    I'm looking to buy a monitor and saw that you need to run on 8-bit for 165hz and 1440p for displayport 1.2a, while it does support 10-bit (8bit-FRC), is this true and is this bad?
