Question about DVI cables; what do I need? Tags: Dvi Graphics Cards Monitors Dvi D Cable Components Last response: December 18, 2012 12:02 AM in Components Share RustySmith December 17, 2012 11:45:51 PM I'm getting a graphics card that needs a DVI-I Dual Link port. My monitor has a DVI-D Dual Link port. The monitor came with a DVI-D single link cable, but I'm not sure if that will work. What sort of cables/adapters do I need to get them to work together?
