I am going to buy two items from asus: monitor and graphics

Customer Question

hi, I am going to buy two items from asus: monitor and graphics card with Display ports cable connectivity on both sides. Could i be sure to get the video/sound signal on my monitor 100%? Is DVI port on the graphics card is a must at all times to get connectivity with the main(key) monitor, not as a mirror monitor?

Hope you are doing well

DVI port on the graphics card is NOT required to get connectivity with the main(key) monitor.

You can keep your computer's output for your main(key) monitor and one HDMI port for another ASUS MX27AQ 27" WQHD 2560x1440 IPS HDMI Eye Care Frameless Monitor

Hope it helps you
