So basically, my kinda new pc (3 months?) is soon going to be welcoming an Oculus Rift into its family of peripherals, but I only have one HDMI port on my GPU (MSI GTX 970) and is currently being used for my monitor. My GPU has 2 VGA and 1 Displayport port (lol.) I guess my main question is addressed because I'm not sure if there's a difference in using my Motherboard's HDMI port and my GPUs. I guess I do because I have always used my GPU's HDMI port for the monitor and none else. So, can I? and if possible, could you guys also tell me why it makes sense to use the GPU's HDMI instead of the Motherboard's HDMI for monitors and, in this case, Oculus? That would be amazing. Thank you.
For now, I have a solution if I cannot use the HDMI on the motherboard, I have learned that I could purchase a Displayport to HDMI adapter and could plug that into my monitor, but here then presents another question: (Drumroll) would that present any disruptions in normal PC gaming? Like would my monitor suffer from being used by a Displayport rather than direct HDMI? In that case, what are some other solutions.
Seriously, thank you for even reading my post. I would love some insight :).
