Soooooooooooooooooooo... i am about to buy a sapphire 7850 oc edition, and i noticed that it has only hdmi and dual dvi. My pc screen has only a DVI input and nothing else.Is there anything i can do WITHOUT buying a new screen?

divi and dual LINK dvi are compatiple you will have no problem you just need to make sure you use a single link cable

Yes.But the dvi will fit in the dual dvi input although they are not the same right?

yes because the dual link has extra pin holes designed to acomidate the extra pins of a dvi dual link so a single link will aso fit
