So I bought a brand new rig this Black Friday (i5 6500/rx480) and lo and behold my surprise when I hath noticed that my antique artifact of a monitor had nothing but VGA connection, so I decided to kick it to the curb and after much hardship and trips aqcuired a brand new LG Gaming 24MP68VQ-P 23.8" FREESYNC monitor that prides itself on being 75hz for the rather good price it has in my country.

I'm rather low on cash after all the spending, and in the meantime spent some money on a "DVI-D to HDMI cable" (one end is DviD, other HDMI)
- 1st question: will that cable offer me the freesync@75hz connected in any direction between the monitor and the Sapphire Nitro+rx480? (and if so, which end do I connect to the gpu?)
- 2nd: If it is not possible, what type of cable would be the cheapest and simplest solution to guarantee that I benefit from the Freesync@75hz ?

PS: I have personally heard that Freesync is available thru Displayport, but also HDMI. Altho I'm asking the question since Im not sure my DVID-HDMI cable would qualify(since only one end is HDMI)

You need to use HDMI - HDMI cable. Why would you use a DVI-HDMI cable when both your GPU and Monitor have HDMI?
as far as I know the monitor needs HDMI in order to use Freesync, from the card end I'm guessing is the same case.

*It is never a good idea to complicate a setup with adapters especially when both ends are the same. return the cable and get an HDMI 1.4 cable.
