I thought the specs for you Motherboard shows a Display Port. Was that wrong?

I don't know- maybe I'm confused - Yes, it has display port, but I thought I would still need a separate card to achieve the higher resolution.

Isn't that what Dude and Badcrc are telling me?

I think they were referring to the HDMI port being limited but the Display Port looks OK.

Lets up know how it works out. Be sure and check the size of the ports for Standard or Mini.

I just went online and there are people that are having a problem getting it to work.

They say you need an active, not passive connection.

What do they mean and is the HA-DP- 06 what I need?

The ports are standard.

Active adapters are use to run a Display Port to a HDMI-DVI-AVG port and has a chip to supply the proper clock.
Display Port to Display Port should us a straight passive cable. I don't know where you are getting this information but post a link as I am interested in what they are saying.

That HA-DP-06 should be fine.

This is what I was reading. Displayport on a p8z77-v deluxe - Asus - Motherboards

The more I read, the more complicated it gets. LOL

I think I'll just listen to people like yourself on this forum and be done with it!!!!

That Tomshardware forum was talking about using a DP to DVI adapter and that is where the active adapter is used.
When using the same type of ports DP to DP, DVI to DVI and HDMI to HDMI then a regular passive cable is fine. When mixing the type of ports then it gets tricky. Since you are using DP to DP a regular passive cable is what you need.
