I have tried to get 144hz with this combo but because my monitor only has HDMI DVI and DVI-D and my graphics card only has Display Port and HDMI I was unable to get 144hz.

Until I bought an active cable to connect DVI-D to Display Port and it worked! But now I have a message on my monitor telling me that the cable is incorrect ("Incorrect cable. Please use the DVI dual-link cable that came with your monitor").

How do I fix this. Is there a different cable I need or is it time to get a new monitor?

I was thinking that maybe something like this might help:

But I am really unsure.

Thanks for the help.

I've had this issue before, and it's probably because cables with two different interfaces are not reliable. This is why an active Dual‑Link DVI to DP active adapter is required.
