    DisplayPort or HDMI for GTX 1070?

    I purchased an MSI GTX 1070 Quicksilver graphics card for my case mod project. The card and my BenQ 32 inch monitor both have DisplayPort and HDMI ports. Is there a preference for one over the other? I've tried both but my eyes can't discern any difference on screen.
