Default Display Port???

Anyone know anything about using Display Port for monitor to computer system connections?

My new Asus PA248Q came with a Display Port cable and a DVI cable (and a VGA cable too). I had read the DP is the one to use so I plugged it into the appropriate monitor outlet and plugged the other end into the DP port on the video card in my new system and basically, it's a no-go. I get a "no vga" found and then nothing happens--boot does not proceed which was real fun when I turned on the pc for the first time.

If I unplug the DP cable and plug in the DVI cable, the pc boots just fine. I don't know if I can plug in BOTH the DP cable AND the DVI cable and then use the OSD on the monitor to select the DP as the primary.

I have this query into Asus tech support but while I'm waiting I thought I'd see if anyone has any suggestions...
