Connecting a Quest 2 with Oculus Link when I only have DisplayPort on the graphics card

Level 2

New Boxx workstation with an RTX A5000 in it. The card only has DisplayPort on the back.

I have a Quest 2 with the Oculus Link cable, but it is only USB C.


How do I connect the Quest 2 to the graphics card when I cannot see any cables Oculus provides for USB C to DP, and they recommend against third-party adapters?

You don't connect it to the graphics card, you plug it into a USB-C port on your motherboard. If your PC doesn't have a USB-C port, you can plug it into a USB 3 (type A) port with an adapter.

Hey I know this post is old but I am looking at purchasing a boxx workstation with the rtx a5000 graphics card and was wondering if you had successfully used it with your quest 2 because they don’t list it as a comparable card and I don’t want to purchase a card that expensive if it will not work with my headset.
