So I literally just built my PC as of 2/27/2019!

My problem is that my GPU has 1 HDMI 2.0B PORT and 3 1.4 Display ports and my monitor has 1 HDMI cable and 1 Dual Link DVI cable so because of that my monitor will not get the desired refresh rate that is 144HZ...

Keep in mind after building the whole PC ,doing all the downloads and what not there was NO! Nvidia control panel on my new PC I did every method that I saw online but nothing worked so I ended up asking my cousin what I should do!

The only solution we came up with is that he sends a zip file containing the Nvidia control panel download and that ended up working!

So my question is what should I get? Some type of adapter where my dual link DVI cable can go into a display port cable? Is that the best solution to where I can get my 144HZ?

Please let me know ASAP!

Thank you.

GPU: (MSI GeForce RTX 2070 DirectX 12 RTX 2070 ARMOR 8G 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card)

Monitor: (Asus VG248QE)

What refresh rate are you getting exactly ? 60Hz ? 120Hz?

Some monitors require to have their own driver installed to be able to be recognized as 144Hz monitor. Have you check the manufacturer website if drivers are available for your monitor ?

60HZ on my new PC but on my old one I used to get 144HZ on my old PC. And yeah there are drivers but I never installed them on my new PC also I never even thought about that? should I try that on my new PC?

It certainly could help to install the driver for the monitor. Although called driver, it’s only a data file with the specs of the monitor so that Windows could know which rate are supported.
If stuck at 60hz, it might just mean that Windows use a generic profile not allowing to go above 60hz.
