I just bought a desktop with this motherboard in it, it says it supports up to 4k via hdmi BUT i got a samsung s27B70D, which apparently doesnt display the screens full resolution if using hdmi. Not that leaves me with displayport and DVI, which according to this motherboard support only up to 1080p, is that correct or have i got something wrong?

You just need to adjust the overscan/underscan options in your graphics card's control panel to get the whole screen to show up when using HDMI.

But wont that make it look bad, or have bad performance? Or does it just depend on the graphics card? For example with a 780 ti would i be able to play games in 1440 p on the monitor i listed and this motherboard with the same input lag or refresh rate as if i were gaming in 1080 p?

Have you actually tried using HDMI? HDMI should be able to handle more than 1080p. Also are you sure you got the model number of your monitor right? I cant find anything on Google.

This is serious i need to withdraw the order if possible, what exactly would happen if i used display port or DVI, would it automatically limit the screen resolution to 1080 because thats what the motherboards limit supposedly is?

If you're getting a graphics card then your motherboard's limits don't matter.

It doesn't matter if the motherboard supports HDMI 1.4 if the monitor doesn't. I'm not familiar with the monitor and the specs don't list the HDMI version it's compatible with, but I'm going to guess that that is the issue, not the motherboard.
DVI and DisplayPort, however, are guaranteed to work. As far as DVI is concerned, just make sure the motherboard's DVI output supports dual link, and make sure you're using a dual link cable, and you should be good to go.

If i wanted everything to be 1440p and run smoothly, is there any compatability issues here? Or things i need to buy to make this work? Thank you very much to anyone that assesses this for me :)

Oh and wifi. Will i need to buy a network card if i want wifi for my desktop?
