Hello! I am looking to get a PC monitor and would like to ask some questions. I have the Nvidia GTX 970 graphics card which comes with HDMI 2.0. Since I am not gonna replace the graphics card anytime soon, I will get a 27inch 1080p monitor.

  1. Does it matter if the monitor has display port since HDMI 2.0 can run at 1080p 240Hz or display port is still better than HDMI.
  2. Will freesync work with my nvidia card?
  3. Gsync monitors are much more expensive. Does it worth the extra cost, considering that my GPU can barelly play new games at > 50-60 fps? And even if I replace it someday, not sure I ll buy nvidia or AMD..
  4. In general, with my graphics card capabilities, does it matter if I get a monitor with more than 75Hz ? Also notice that I dont play FPS games and generally I am a casual gamer, mostly RPG, strategies and MMOs.
Thanks in Advance!

PS. Sorry for bad English
