I've tried these adapters, and they work.
DisplayPort-to-HDMI:

DVI-to-HDMI

Also, you should have Rift and all monitors on the primary GPU.

Thanks for heads up. I was just going to mention that everything plugged in while in sli or crossfire have to utilize the primary/main card. If your not sure only use the one thats in the top slot.

I have an HDMI to DVI (I think, its the wide port, there is two of them) from my TV to the 980.  The  TV is a 55" 4k (4096x2160) and I have no issues.  My DK2 is in the HDMI port on the 980.  My desktop and all games display just fine at 4k.  What problems are we even discussing?

Turns out that while the DP->HDMI adapter won't work with my projector, it does actually work with the Rift.

Have anybody tested if there's any measurable increase in latency using such an adapter?

Great thanks for testing! Does the audio also works through these adapters?

DVI doesn't carry audio, but DisplayPort can (at least that's what I heard, never tried). In any case, Rift uses USB audio, so the port shouldn't matter (as long as it's digital and has the necessary bandwidth).

DVI to HDMI adapter does work for the Rift. I had to do that because the directly plugging it into the HDMI port didn't work for me (980ti). Still looking for a fix.

Which adapter is best for the rift? Is it better "DVI to HDMI" or "DP to HDMI"?

In the case of DVI -> HDMI, since it's the same signal (well, without audio) it shouldn't change anything. I don't know for DisplayPort but it sould be the same deal...



(DK1 and DK2 with the most recent runtime (direct driver mode) works well with the adapters that were given with them.)


I have a GTX970 with a single HDMI (and believe that the 1080 I have ordered only has 1 as well??), I use the HDMI for the Rift and have a DVI straight into HDMI cable (not an adapter) to run the PC to an LG 4K OLED TV.  You can buy DVI that carries sound now so all works fine if you decide to go that route.

I have a question, I've got 2 GTX 980 Ti's SLI'd together, they each of course have and HDMI port. Could I plug the rift into one card, and my TV into the other, using both the HDMI ports? Has anyone tested this.. I'm almost sure you could, but I want to be 100% on this so when I finally get the rift, I'm not then ordering new parts online and waiting even longer.. Thanks in advance for your help. 


If you have the GPUs running SLI, then none of the ports on GPU1 will work. If you remove the SLI, then you could probably run the GPUs independently. Please let me know how you got it working because I'm in the same position. I've been running my Oculus off my laptop, but now that my new rig is finally finished being built, I'd like to see how it runs of it. Of course, running the GPUs independently won't provide as much power as running SLI, so figuring out a way to hook the Rift up along with an HDMI monitor/TV would be great to know. 

I'm running 2 x Gigabyte 980 Ti Gaming 6GB G1 GPUs running SLI, each one is unlocked and has a custom BIOS flashed, but I recently purchased an LG OLED 4K UHD TV to use as my monitor, replacing 3 x Samsung 4K monitors running Nvidia Surround. The 3 monitors were all running off the DP adapters, but my LG OLED runs off HDMI. Since I'd rather not ditch my OLED monitor, I guess my only options are a DP to HDMI adapter for the LG so I can use the HDMI for the Rift or just keep running the Rift off my laptop, which I'd rather not do having so much time vested into this build. I know with an i7-6950X, my 2 x 980 Tis, and 32GB Corsair Dominator memory, the rift should run much better than my laptop, even though it's running a GTX 1070, which is a step-up from my desktop GPUs.
