Hi.

I'm going to buy WQHD (2560x1440) monitor. How to connect MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G to use 2560x1440 resolution? The specification for card states:

DVI Connectors
1 (Dual-link DVI-I)
Max Resolution: 2048x1536 @60 Hz.
HDMI Connectors
1 (version 1.4a/2.0)
Max Resolution: 4096x2160 @24 Hz (1.4a), 3840x2160 @60 Hz (2.0)
DisplayPort
3 (version 1.2)
Max Resolution: 4096x2160 @60 Hz

I prefer connection over DVI but according to above spec I'm affraid if will be impossible...

I've heard the picture quality over HDMI/DisplayPort is worse then over DVI - is it right?

Well DVI won't handle 2560x1440 resolution as you can see from specs. Either DisplayPort or HDMI will be fine.

yes, but this is refresh rate at max res. At lower res there will be probably higher refresh rate...

120/144Hz can only be reachable using  dual link DVI. Also why u dont use DSR (downsample) since is available for maxwell.

But try it out, use the DP. If u have an 1440p 120/144Hz monitor, can work, i dunno for sure. Im using only DVI for 144hz.

This cannot be possible Dual Link DVI is capable up to 2560x1600

I just purchased 2x 980s gaming and all the current cards only support DVI up to 1 (Dual-link DVI-I) Max Resolution: 2048x1536 @60 Hz.
This is incorrect unless MSI HQ R&D did not test 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 res or they put crappy components inside this card to not allow it.  I went back and fourth with owners on newegg with this card one owner did verify that it does work . For me I own a Monitor that only uses DVI dual link at 2560x1440. This will be a deal breaker for me if the cards do not work with my monitor or the video cards do not function correctly.
This does not make any sense what so ever for a manufacture to implement this standard as the majority of the population isnt even on 2560x1440 or 4k.  So i am pretty upset about how tech support fails to acknowledge the reasoning behind this new DVI standard .  Go look at the 760-780 series all say max res 2560x1600.   
So my question to everyone out there who owns this card am i screwed or should i just use my dual link cable to run 2560x1440 even though it states 2048x1536 max res.  Someone that i know online says it works so whats the deal?

FYI this video card does support a max res of 2560x1600 over DVI

Tech support for MSI and Sales department were not trained correctly to let the customer understand that Max Resolution on the website for DVI 2048x1536 is for using the analog VGA adapter

Hope everyone now understands! Because this took me 4 hours of my time to figure out on my own with the help of Newegg tech support and verified owners!

I'm running a HP ZR30w at 2560x1600 over dual link DVI just fine fwiw.
Did you install an .inf/driver for the monitor so it recognizes it properly? Are you certain your using the proper dual link DVI cable it came with?

Also, DVI-D and displayport signals are digital, so they are the same quality. They get a signal or not, you usually get sparkles when you have a bad cable...
