Ok so my current setup is a 60 hz refresh monitor with my 5.1 AV receiver. I want to get a 144hz with display port but my only problem is that I run hdmi passthrough on my receiver. The receiver only has hdmi and optical cable on the back. Can I run an hdmi from my gpu to my receiver and then run a display port from my gpu to my monitor and everything work? Or do I run display port from gpu to monitor and have to use optical cable for audio (which is supported on my computer). OR is there no solution at all and I have to stay on 60hz to use my current receiver and pc at the same time?
 
Did this EVER worked, or is this a new connection?

You should PC ---(HDMI)-->Receiver--(HDMI)-->Display.

Don't confuse display refresh rate with Frame Rate your GPU is outputting. Your receiver is unlikely to be able to handle > 60 FPS, in which case u may have to hook up PC to Display directly for video, then add another Toslink PC to Receiver for audio.

You have misunderstood the problem. He wants to run his display at 144hz, but the AV receiver can't do that.

@op the problem with your plan is that there will be screen tears if the receiver and monitor are set to different refresh rates.

I am facing the same problem but do not have a solution.
