Problem with GPU/only 1 HDMI

I have a Z170 MOBO, which is normally compatible with Win10 and above. I like my Win 7 Ultimate, so I did the hotfix. Installed a XFX RX480 GDDR5 GPU, i7-6700k, 500 GB Evo, 2x8GB DDR4 RAM. My one and only problem.. My GPU has only ONE HDMI! I have to use it for Windows! There are four Display Ports.. should I get a “mini dvi to hdmi converter” using the vive box, or get a “dvi to hdmi converter” and use it for my monitor & simply plug the Vive into my GPU?? Very frustrating as I cannot use it until this is fixed.

Re: Problem with GPU/only 1 HDMI

The cheapest option would be to get a mini display port cable to full size.  On the Vive Link Box there is HDMI and mini DP, then you can plug it straight into your PC.  A cable can be bought from Amazon for a few £€$

 

What about your monitor does that support DP, then you could just get a DP cable and use that on your monitor and then use HDMI on the vive.

The only way to win is not to play

If possible, try to use DisplayPort for the monitor. If you can't, get an adapter and your problem will be solved.
