    Displayport Cable Advice

    My ASUS ROG PG279Q Monitor did not come with a display port cable. I therefore need a replacement cable but have learned that I should only really get the VESA certified cables. Startech do the cheapest but a number of people are reporting issues with it and the other two I can find are expensive £20 (club 3D and accell).

    Does anyone have suggestions from personal experience with the non-certified cables from Amazon or whatever?

    As above, Amazon's stuff is reliable.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
