It’s one of these:

Which means a different type of cable, doesn’t it?

Sigh.

  1. You can get hdmi to display port cables. Have a look on Amazon. Is the display port on the gfx card or the monitor?

  2. As Mike has pointed out there is a plethora of types of cable. You can get adaptor cables for many of them such as HDMI to DP (Display Port) DP to VGA etc. I use DP to DP when ever possible but HDMI seems to be taking over from DP. They really can be a complete pain in the arse to get right Is there any way that you can post photos of the back of your boxes and where the cables connect to the monitors?

  3. HDMI seems to be taking over from DP
    DP is the more recent standard, and is aimed at computers rather than TVs. It supports significantly higher data rates than current iterations of HDMI (up to 16K screens, if they exist).
