@SophieBxnks  DisplayPort works great with modern graphics cards and laptops.  A new monitor should come with a DP cable already.  Avoid HDMI if you want a high refresh rate, as many monitors only support up to 60 Hz when running through an HDMI cable.

@puzzlezaddict

wow, you really know your stuff! I’m not sure of what a display port is. Would you be able to link me please? Also what about Extension Lead? Would this be any good: https://www.argos.co.uk/product/9823116

@SophieBxnks  That would be fine, as would any other quality surge protector.

 

DisplayPort is just a type connector in the cable that goes from graphics card to monitor.  Here are some good pictures:

And again, the monitor should come with cables; no need to buy your own.
