Hi! I'm having some difficulty figuring out how to enable freesync on my monitor with my 295x2 card. I read on the ACER website that this graphics card is supported to use adaptive sync. However, i read online that I need to hookup to  the monitor via displayport 1.2a, but upon purchasing the monitor and graphics card, neither supplied the necessary cable to make this free sync happen. (I'm currently just using a DVI-D cable)


The 295x2's ports in the back are 1 x DVI-D and 4 x Mini DisplayPorts. and I need to hookup to the monitor's Displayport input I believe.


Am I missing anything, or will I need to purchase a DisplayPort to DVI-D cable to connect the two to use freesync?


any help or push in the right direction will be much appreciated.
