My pc Specs are,
Ryzen 5 2400G
Asrock B450 Steel Legend
16GB DDR4 3000MHz RAM
Windows 10 Pro

TV Specs are,
Mi TB 4 55inch
4K HDR
Resolution: 3840 x 2160
Refresh Rate: 60Hz

I would like to get my PC monitor and TV connected to PC always. So that whenever I have to switch displays, I can do it easily. Question is,

Should I be using a displayport to HDMI cable for pc monitor and HDMI to HDMI cable for TV?

Note: most modern HDMI to HDMI cables says it supports up to 4k. Where as most DisplayPort to HDMI cables says it supports only up to 1080.

Thanks

For your TV use the DP to HDMI cable in order for it to support 4K

But if you have a 2.1 hdmi it'll support 4K aswell.
All the DP to HDMI cable I found in amazon says, it will support only up to 1080. For eg this DP to HDMI
Where as the HDMI to HDMI cables says it will support 4K. For eg this HDMI to HDMI

So I was thinking, I will use the DP to HDMI cable for connecting PC monitor (which is 1080) and HDMI to HDMI for connecting to TV (4K).

How does that sound?
