According to Dell's website my monitor has HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 input, if I plug in a DP 1.4 or HDMI 2.1 cable will they not work? I ask this because I want to use HDR and according to the manufacturer I need a 2.0a cable, but I found a 2.1 cable with a cheaper price and I will have the product in hand tomorrow, otherwise I will have to wait more a few days. will I have a problem with that?

Just need Hdmi cable that is high speed. There's no such thing as version numbers regarding Hdmi cables, it's just marketing jumbo. The version number only correlates to the connection port itself, the cable is just copper wires.
