I picked up an auria 27'' monitor. I thought I required display port, but that turned out not to be the case because I got the wrong type of cable. They included a 24 pin dual link dvi cable. It supports the high resolution. does display port give any other advantages? thanks!

No it does not. You're going to get the same performance/picture no matter which connection you use.

Well DisplayPort has a higher bandwidth and is able to transmit audio. It's kind of like the next-gen of HDMI, although you probably won't see a difference between it and dual-link DVI.

DP is spring loaded and less of a pain to secure than DVI, but for normal 1600p and below displays that is about it.

if you are already using dual link dvi your good to go, display port will not give you anything other than hdmi and display point as i recall can also transfer sound but who has speakers on their monitor anyhow
