Alright so I just bought a monitor for my laptop because I want better hz for gaming and I've been prolonging it for too long. Bought one, the Xg2701 from Viewsonic. 144hz, 1080p, 27 inch.

Figured out this morning that hdmi caps out at 60, so when I try to change my hz, it just reverts. Realized I have to use the display port.

The problem is my laptop is the MSI GT72 Dominator pro and it ONLY has 2 mini display ports. The monitor has a mini display port AND a display port.

So my question is, is a mini display port (laptop) to display port (monitor) cord fine, or should I be buying the mini display to mini display cord? Or does it simply not matter?
