Hello,

I have 3 Asus PG279Q's, I want to connect them all in surround to my RTX2070 Super, 144Hz and 1440p. (It has 2 DP out, 1 HDMI out, and one USB-C out)
To achieve this do I use the two display port outs and the 3rd uses the HDMI, or can I use the USB-C as an out to Displayport using a USB-C to Displayport cable?
Haven't used three monitors before and am looking for advice.
What is the best way to do this without losing quality/colors/Hz etc.

Thanks!

How you connect them depends on what ports the video card has. If you have 3 DP and your monitors are all the same and all have DP ports, then use those. Why are you looing for an DP to HDMI adapter vs just all 3 display port?

The RTX 2070 Super has 2 DPs, 1 USB-C and one HDMI for outputs. trying to figure out how to get my 3 DP's from it.

You can't without a card that has 3 DP connectors. You will need to use HDMI but that may limit your refresh rate depending on the card and monitor specs for HDMI. Maybe USB C to DP but again need to check on the specs of what the card can do.

Thanks for the inputs! I have ordered a USB C to DP cable. It should arrive a few days before the third monitor. Appreciate the inputs! I'll post if it works or not
