Hello everyone I wanted to if a HDMI, Displayport or DVI-D was best for gaming at 1080p.

Thanks in advance, Luke

Any will be fine; whatever cable is cheapest.

For 60Hz refresh rate monitors any one of them will do, the difference will be non-existent, but for higher than 60Hz, you should be using Dual-link DVI-D.

Really? I thought that the Displayport was best out of the three.

For what your doing, all will be the same.
DisplayPort is technically the most capable of the three, it has the highest bandwidth so can support higher resolutions like 4K or a possible 1440p @120hz. But in terms of image quality there will be no difference, and in the context of what you need, any of the connectors will do the same job just as well.

So basically Displayport supports higher resolutions. Would anyone know where to find a decent brand name Displayport in Australia?

Your problem is going to be finding a 1080p monitor that supports Displayport, not a cable. Unless your buying a 120hz, you wont find a Displayport connection on a 1080p screen.

Either HDMI or DVI, as mentioned throughout the thread, there's no difference between them for what your doing.

There's Dell U2312HM 1080p 60Hz IPS monitor which has display port.

Yeah, bit of a generalization that statement. Since then I have actually gotten my hands on an ASUS PA238Q, a 1080p IPS with a Displayport connection (which is great, because I can use Eyefinity without having to buy a $50 adapter, Australian prices are ridiculous).

True that. It has the highest bandwidth among all the cables and also carries audio signals I am not sure if DisplayPort supports encoded DTS/Dolby bitstreaming though.

HDMI best for TV but with a 1.4 HDMI wire can support some 3D
DisplayPort best for PC (even if not often seen) Good for 3D
DL-DVI (DL for dual) more pin in the wire. Good for 3D too

The new technologie coming out from Nvidia and supported by Asus is the G-Sync. And when you add that module to the only monitor that can support it for now (VG248QE) it will take out the HDMI and DL-DVI port out into oblivion and leave you with 1 option the DisplayPort. http://www.blurbusters.com/gsync/upgrade-walkthrough/

So my guess would be that if Nvidia and Asus decided to give one option only to their technology, it most be the best choice. I guess.
