My laptop is MSI GS65 , GTX 1060. It has a HDMI and a mini display port. I was very close to buying BenQ XL2411 until I heard that you cannot achieve 144hz without buying a Displayport to DVI Adapter which is expensive.

What do i need to do to connect my laptop to an external monitor and get 144hz 1080P? What kind of monitor should i get thats on a similar price range as XL2411 .
How do i know which monitor can get to 144hz using my laptops display port/ mini display port.

sorry if i sound dumb im not really familiar in this field
