DP to DP or DP to HDMI? What is the best?


I would like to find the best cable for a present, I am not a gamer myself but it's for a surprise...

So, to make it short, the question: for a best resolution, is it better to use a cable DP to HDMI (knowing the monitor has only HDMI 1,4 and such a cable says "4K @ 60 Hz", or a cable DP to DP (1.4), knowing the monitor has a DP 1.2 port) and the cable says "4K @ 144 Hz".


the monitor is a Asus TFU Gaming VG24VQR, with 2 HDMI 1.4 port (48 - 144 Hz) and 1 DP 1.2 port (48-168 Hz).
The processor is AMD Ryzen 5 5600
The graphic card is a Gygabite RTX 4060 Gaming OC 8GD
The memory sticks Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 2X16 Gb
The mothercard is MSI A 520 M A-PRO

Thanks for your help!
