Hello, I recently bought this monitor and my main monitor is using the DVI slot in my graphics card, I was wondering if it was possible if I could get this monitor to run on 144hz using a HDMI cable. When I go into advance settings it is only letting me change it to 60hz maximum. Do I need to buy an sort of adapters or a new HDMI cable as am I unsure what version of HDMI cable it is using and don't want to spend money that is not needed to be spent.

Thank you.
 
To output 1080p content at 144Hz, you will need either a Dual-Link DVI, a DisplayPort, or an HDMI 1.4 or higher (though some monitors with HDMI 1.4 are limited to 60Hz or 120Hz) cable.

For 144Hz at 1440p, you will need at least an HDMI 2.0 or a DisplayPort 1.2 while for 4K 144Hz you are going to need an HDMI 2.1 or alternatively, a DisplayPort 1.4 which maxes out at 120Hz without compression.
