You plug the cable into your graphics card, and then into your monitor...
Really its that simple, you can mix all the variants.

You will need a Single Link cable, but chances are one came with the monitor.

But I found that the monitor has (VGA / Dvi-D single link ) ports only
and the graphics card has ( VGA / HDMI / Dvi-i dual link ) ports

So , what's the best way to cennect them ??????

Get yourself a DVI-D Single Link cable, you can plug that into the DVI-I Dual Link connector. You can mix and match DVI connections just fine as long as you can physically plug the cable into both ends.
