Video Cables? (Display Port)

I have a MSI 7970 lightning I want connected to my ASUS VG248QE.

The 7970 lightning looks to have dual link by how I understand the images but sites say it's single.

Came with mini DP-DP adapter

Monitor has dvi / dp / hdmi connections

Should I go with Mini dp - dp, mini dp adapter to dp cable or mini dp /mini dp adapter to dvi?

okay I know that looks like a mess don't recal ==> stuff well but I asume it goes like this

7970 [mini dp> >=Mini dp - dp= >monitor (just dunno if I need to go with cable or adapter I already have to cable also which is cheaper "google" but maybe people know deals &/or if either one gives negative aspects / a bonus to going with dp - dvi over this)

sorry it's a mess but I think you get me. BTW will have secondary "tv" that is 120hz but has vga and hdmi no dp/dvi I was curious if I can run it at 120hz and how I was told hdmi cables cap around 60 but I think that might be bs ... little lost...

I also just learned dvi has multiple types forgot to look at mini dp vs dp 1.2 etc...,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.50768961,d.aWc,pv.xjs.s.en_US.8oipRXAmOwI.O&biw=1920&bih=950&tch=1&ech=1&psi=PzYNUsd-qNfIAfHCgOAJ.1376597562254.3&sa=X&ei=QjYNUu_CLtK4yAHD8YDgBA&ved=0CKYBEPMCMAU

use displayport. the minidp-dvi adapters max at 1080p

what do DP max at the monitor has a DP input

and Hz?


Thank you Commissar and I found the time to read over and look into them. Nice DP also suports other feeds like built in webcams audio etc... going with TY again P.S. Solved!
