I have a 144hz 1080p BenQ monitor and an EVGA 780 Ti. Going to be putting my build together soon. (I'm a first timer.) Stupid question: do I plug my dual-link DVI cable directly into the GPU? Or do I just connect it to the motherboard at the back of the computer?

Connect it to the GPU! I recently forgot to do this and had a small panic attack when my monitor was giving me a no input message.

To the GPU. If you plug into motherboard, you are using the onboard video and your video card is doing nothing.
