I just bought an Asus VG278 that has 3d capabilities, a 144 hz refresh rate, and I was wondering about what type of cable I should use. I have heard about dual-link divi but have no Idea about what it is, also I was wondering whether to use dvi, hdmi, or if these is any other type of cable that is better. My budget is 120$ and I already own a Chocolate HDMI cable. I do not know if I should use that or something else.

I want to maximize the capabilities of my monitor with full speed, resolution, and color.

You should probably use dual link DVI; HDMI might not work.

* The specs page mentions 3D support for DVI, so at least you know it will work with DVI:
* Another popular Asus monitor (the 144Hz one) will only work at 144Hz using DVI or Displayport, so there's a good chance this limit also applies to this model.
* The monitor only supports HDMI 1.4, which may or may not matter.
