Go with the DisplayPort. Although the high speed HDMI cable offers true 4k (4096 x 2160) and the DisplayPort only offers 4k formatted for 16:9 i believe (3840 x 2160), the DisplayPort offers a refresh rate of up to 60hz, while the HDMI is limited to 24hz, and both surpass your resolution needs. You can find more info here: ...

According to AMD's specifications, it supports up to 2560x1600 over DisplayPort or dual-link DVI (but not VGA or HDMI). 2560x1600 is not 4k.

PCI Express 3.0 is backward compatible with 2.0, the transfer speed is just lower. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_3.x) However, depending on the PSU quality (no-name entry-level or known-brand), a 350W PSU can deliver as low as 150W which will not be enough at full load. At peak load your computer can draw as much as 200W, including ...

The manufacturer recommends a minimum of 300W power supply to run this graphics card. So if your PSU has a maximum of 150W it won't be able to run it without trouble. Also, if I googled it right, your PC is an All-in-one, which in most cases means that you have no options to upgrade CPU or GPU on that machine. The problem with those computers is that in ...

Since your display supports HDMI 1.4 and, according to Wikipedia, 2560×1600p75 is supported since HDMI 1.3, you’ll face no problems when using HDMI. For your intent, it is absolutely equal to DisplayPort. HDMI cables are no longer “versioned”. Instead, they are separated into “Standard” and “High Speed”, with the latter being capable of 4K etc. So your ...

Your eyes can certainly recognize much more colors than 32bit depth allows to display. If you look closely you can clearly see the line separating colors in various gradients, like the one mentioned above. 48-bit color depth is very useful if you're working with 48-bit images, which will make your gradients, fades etc much smoother, if you find a printing ...

Electrically you would be able to connect one monitor to the DP on your R9 and one or two more monitors top the Matrox card. The only problem you may run into are the drivers. On windows XP and older you only had one single graphics driver. From Vista onward (and that includes win8) you should be able to run multiple drivers and use both cards. I ...

In your case, DisplayPort is probably going to be the better option. The newest DisplayPort standard (1.2) supports 21.6 Gbit/s bandwidth, while the newest HDMI (2.0) standard only supports a bandwidth of 18 Gbits/s. Your RF-G1167 can't be any higher than 1.2, and, as such, won't support Ultra-HD resolutions (according to the page on the BestBuy website). I ...
