Hi,

I have an old 17 inch Samsung 740BF monitor. So far i've only used the D-SUB cable, but now i decided that i should try the DVI connection.

The "problem" is that, the cablei have is Single Link type and the DVI output on my HD 4850 is a Dual Link type. So, will the DVI connection work this way with Single link DVI cable connected to Dual Link DVI output?

Thanks.

It should be fine. The only problems I've heard of are folks trying to use a single link DVI cable with a monitor that requires dual link (like 30" flagship monitors).

I guess the first question is have you tried it? Plug it in an function check it!

I was under the impression that you only need dual link over 1920x1080, otherwise single link works.
