Hi there computer wizards!

I have bought myself a new PC and am now trying to enable Nvidia G-sync, however this requires a Displayport Cable to be connected between my monitor and PC.

Now my problem is, my screen is a 175hz screen, however i would like to be able to run a 4k resolution at the 175hz. But i can't find any cables capable of that. It seems most cables can do a max of 120hz at this resolution and a lot of sales sites have wrong "Values" listed - As in 8k 144hz, where the production website lists 8k 60hz.

Now can anyone tell me if it is possible to get cables that go higher than 120hz at 4k or will i have to accept that, that's as good as it gets. :)

Does your graphics card have a displayport 2.0 port ? That is...

Any DP 2.0 cable should work.

What monitor is it? Doesn't it come with a cable?

as far as i can see it's a DisplayPort 1.4a , it's a 3080ti OC card so i kinda thought it could do anything xD

If i'm reading the table right, 1.4a can run 175hz in 4k right? it's a little more complicated than my brain can figure out xD
