3D Monitor DVI-D only - connect to a HDMI laptop.

I have a 3D LED monitor which has only 1 DVI-D input (for 120hz). I would like to connect my laptop (which has an nvidia gt555m (3D capable)) to the monitor but the laptop only has an HDMI output.

The laptop guide says that I can connect the laptop to a 3D TV via HDMI to output 3D, however I wanted to know if I could get an HDMI to DVI-D (3D capable) cable.

If so, links would be appreciated. Thanks :D

Take your pick. DVI and HDMI are identical electrically, the only difference is the plug. You can also use a HDMI>DVI adapter with a DVI cable or a DVI>HDMI adapter with a HDMI cable. An integrated cable solution like I linked is best, though.

Just so you are aware, if you use an HDMI or HDMI to DVI connection, your monitor will be limited to 720p for 120hz.
