Does it make a difference in graphic quality which port is used. When I first started my new MB, I connected my display to the DP on the MB. After setting up the Bios as instructed for CSM and Legasy, I lost the output and then connected to the GPU output. Thanks

ASUS TUF Gaming Z590 Plus Gaming Motherboard (ATX, 11th/10th Gen Intel Core, LGA 1200 Socket, DDR4, PCIe 4, CFX, M.2 Slots, USB 3.2 Gen 2, DP/HDMI, Mystic Light
Gigabyte GeForce GTX GV-N1080G1 GAMING-8GD
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin SDRAM (PC4-25600) DDR4 3200
Intel Core i5-10600 (base stroke: 3.30GHz; socket: LGA1200; 65 watt

It depends. IF that display port is your ONLY monitor then you want it connected to the graphics card. If it is a side monitor, then you might want to leave it on the motherboard and use the 1080 on your main monitor for max performance. It really depends on your specific configuration.
