Hi All,

I am looking to upgrade my gfx card from GTX 1070 to RTX 3060. I only plan to game at 1080p so 3060 should suffice for my needs.

Recently, i bought a Zotac RTX 3060 card but much to my dismay, i noticed that it does not support DVI-D (in fact none of the RTX do). i guess i did not do my research before buying.

anyways, what i am looking for is a monitor which has the following features:
  • 24" monitor with 144 hz/165 hz 1080p
  • DisplayPort, HDMI & DVI-D support bcz my gtx 1070 still runs fine so i would like to have backward compatibility
  • Nvidia Gsync support
I found this monitor to meet these needs but i am open to suggestions and also feedback on my choice:

https://www.amazon.in/VG258QR-1920x1080-Compatible-Esports-FreeSync/dp/B07KJ67Y3K/ref=nav_signin?crid=3HQDGAWAAPGSX&keywords=ASUS+TUF+Gaming+VG258QR&qid=1657210620&sprefix=asus+tuf+gaming+vg258qr,aps,182&sr=8-1&th=1

Also, in case i do not get a displayport cable in this product above, please provide me link(s) to cables on amazon which can work with this monitor.

thanks!

You could look towards an adapter.

Hey, thanks for the reply!

My budget would be around the same that my recommended monitor costs. In US$, it would come around 250-260 $.
Yes, I am from India so links from there (esp Amazon) would really be appreciated.
