Which monitor is right for your computer? There are many factors to consider before making a purchase, but a big one is port availability. Different ports have different capabilities and compatibilities, so take a look at the back of your PC to see what you’re working with.
If you’re looking to plug a new monitor into your gaming computer, you’ll probably notice two ports that look remarkably similar. There will be HDMI and DisplayPort ports to choose from, but what’s the difference between the two, and does it really matter which one you use?
The answer, as always, is “it depends.” What are you looking to do? For instance, you will have different needs depending on if you’re gaming, or photo editing, or just looking to hook your Mac up to something that works.
