I'm looking to buy a hdmi to display port for my xbox to monitor, I just want to know if anyone has done this and it's better than just regular hdmi?

No bud, because you're literally just adapting it to DP.

The advantage of a DP cable is being able to run at the frequency your monitor is set for at the lowest latency, adapting from HDMI is not going to give you any of that because its still HDMI to HDMI - the adapter is just allowing you to use the DP port, not giving you any of the actual benefits of using and actual DP cable.

Edit: I misspoke a little bit. The DP to HDMI adapter would work for a PC, but I do not believe it will work for an Xbox although I have not tried it myself personally.

Thanks for the quick response, the monitor has a hdmi port anyway I just wanted to know if the display port would just make any improvement to the xbox thats all.
