    The only thing that might work is a USB Type-C to DisplayPort adapter combined with a DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI converter, would probably total to $120+. It might be better to just buy a new monitor that has DisplayPort.

    But in theory it should work right? price is not an issue, and maintaining 110hz or even 100hz will be good enough,

    what if i got a high quality thunderbolt 3 to dual link dvi cable adapter? removing the display port part of it?

    Maybe, but likely would be capped at 60 Hz. And they tend to be unreliable in general.

    There aren't any Thunderbolt 3/USB-C to Dual-Link DVI converters.
