Hello everyone,

I got a new monitor (Samsung odyssey g5 27") that's capable of 1440p and 144hz,
How do I get it to run at 1440p @ 144hz with my gtx780?
Right now I'm getting 1440p @ 60hz (59.951 according to windows).
Should I be connecting it through DP? currently running HDMI.

I know the GPU is outdated but I want to use 1440p for movies and 144hz for gaming (I only play CSGO).
Last few questions, can I use FreeSync with nvidia cards? can I enable V-Sync through nvidia control panel and in game? will it cause any trouble instead of helping?
I tried making a custom resolution on nvidia control panel but the screen stays black.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much I will give it a try,
I never enabled VSync previously as it caused a lot of lag, but thought it might help with the setup.

Should I get a specific cable? like 1.2 or something like that.
