I've bought a Panasonic 55inch DT50 LED 3d tv which awaits delivery and I want to connect my nvidia Gtx 660 ti to it but I'm confused on cables.
The people in PC world said I really needed SANDSTROM AV Gold Series 21 Gbps which at £85 I thought was ridiculous, although I would get a 25% discount if I bought the cables that day, and I would need to buy 3 for the pc, blu ray player and satellite box.
I thought I would not be ripped off and check you guys out for advice first.
However having searched these forums first, I am now even more confused because I've seen various posts suggesting the cheapest HDMI cables will do or some even saying display port is better than HDMI!
My gfx card has:-
1 x DisplayPort
1 x Dual Link DVI-D
1 x Dual Link DVI-I
1 x HDMI
So now I'm really confused. My questions are:-
1) can I buy any (cheap) cable to link my pc to the 3dtv, if so which one?
2) which is the best port/cable to link my gfx card to my 1920x1080 60hz pc monitor, display port or HDMI?
display port was designed for monitors. Technically more accomplished, flexible and capable of carrying much more than just video and audio. At top-spec it has much more bandwidth too (10.2GB/s vs 17.28GB/s). Supports multiple monitors on one cable, so you can daisy-chain two or more together. Thus, full DisplayPort 1.2 can drive four 1920 x 1200 monitors, one on each link
