I just got my Acer 144hz gaming monitor.

I have it connected to my MSI 970 GPU.


I just connected everything up lastnight and looks pretty good.

It came with 2 cables? DVI and D sub?  Which connection should I use to get the best performance?  It also has an HDMI and display.

Also.  Does anything need to be set or adjusted right out of the box?  I know I can adjust the color etc.. But does 144hz need to be set?  Or is it 144hz right out of the box?


With my MSI 970 is there a option to adjust settings to maximize its performance?  Or is it pretty much right out of the box all set and ready to go?

I just want to make sure I maximize my monitor and GPU to get the best performance and picture out of it.


Thank you

This post might sound silly, but I am still new to all of this.  If I di need t adjust setting on either component where do I go and what do I want to check.

an HDMI connection is going to provide a higher display bandwidth than DVI and VGA/Dsub
