Closed Radeon 6850--DVI-DVI or DVI-HDMI Tags: Graphics Cards DVI Radeon Graphics Last response: May 2, 2011 3:40 PM in Graphics & Displays Share fallout1 May 2, 2011 2:32:44 PM Hello, I just ordered an HIS Radeon 6850 and I'm trying to decide the best method of connection. My monitor has a DV-I (white) and VGA port and the video card has the following: "Display Port Yes HDMI Yes DVI Upper Single-link DVI-D + Bottom Dual-link DVI-I VGA No" SO, I'm trying to understand the plethora of ports here and whether it is preferable or matters to go from DVI-DVI or instead DVI-HDMI (on the graphics card) Thanks!

(you can reserve that for your HD TV later) fallout1 May 2, 2011 3:35:26 PM Best answer selected by fallout1.
