Will this monitor work?

I am going to order this graphics card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130839&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

and this monitor:
http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Accessories/Monitors/A3M50AA?HP-W2072a-20-inch-Diagonal-LED-Backlit-LCD-Monitor

I know the monitor says it has VGA and DVI-D inputs, so my question is if the graphics card outputs a DVI-D signal? The specs on the card just say it has two DVI outputs and comes with a DVI-I adapter, so will the card put out a DVI-D signal that the monitor will accept?

Thanks

  1. The card you have listed has 1 DVI-D and 1 DVI-I port on it. You will be fine.
  2. Thank you for the quick reply. I am building my first computer so i am kind of new to this. How did you figure that out? Is it just common knowledge or did it miss it somewhere in the description?

    If you look at the pictures, you can see two black DVI connectors on the card. If you zoom in, you will see the pin configurations are different between the two connectors. One is DVI-D and one is DVI-I. You can search Google for diagrams of the pin configurations if you are curious.
  4. Thanks!
