I recently bought a RTX 2070 Super, which means no more DVI port.
My second monitor, a old monitor (Samsung SMEX2220), but still doing great, (1080p, 60Hz and essentially used for anything else except gaming) was using a DVI port.
I am now looking for an adapter to convert my DVI to either HDMI or Displayport, but I am wondering which one is the best, especially if I am not gonna use that monitor for gaming.
Thanks,

Either DP to Hdmi or DVI cable will work passively at 1080p 60Hz.

Thank you for your quick response,
So based on what you told me and what I read on linustechtips, I should be going for something like this for HDMI?
