Apologies if this isn't in the right place, you probably don't have a specific sub category for this level of foolishness lol.
I've recently purchased a brand new desktop and 2nd hand monitor separately without paying attention to connections. The monitor is 1920 x 1200. Connections as follows:
There are also various bluetooth/jacks around.
So my question is what's my best way to go about connecting it up? The confusion is to do with whether HDMI can do 1920 x 1200? If so then the answer seems simple of getting 1 x HDMI to DVI. If not am I correct in thinking DVI doesn't carry audio? If so....does this mean having to get a HDMI to DP for audio and DVI to DVI for visual?
Unfortunately the monitor was only supplied with VGA and I don't have any of the above cables to test.
PC is new so all ports will be latest HDMI/Bluetooth tech. It has on board sound card (I think!). Monitor I think is 2012 model originally but not certain.
I'd like to know what you think is both the most efficient solution and also the best performance wise (if they differ).
