Choosing an external monitor for G713

Level 8
What ports and cables should I be looking for when choosing an external monitor? I want to go with a 34" 21:9, but didn't know which port to use from my laptop and which should I connect to the monitor. I'm assuming I use the HDMI port, but does using that limit my framerate on the target monitor? If so, does it matter if I get a 165Hz monitor?

Thanks so much!

Was thinking about buying this one, but I could go $150 cheaper on something else depending on the answers above.
