just use a common dvi cable... only if your monitor had a dual link dvi input (probably 120hz display) you would need a dual link dvi cable, but you can use a Single Link Dvi cable to connect your GPU to the monitor, and it will work.

you mean that a single link dvi would work with dual-link??

Like i have said before...

a Dual Link DVI OUTPUT is just the output meaning that it will run DVI DUAL LINK if you use a DUAL-LINK cable with a MONITOR that supports a DUAL LINK DVI input, but if your monitor input is only SINGLE LINK, you CAN "YES" plug a single link cable from the GPU to the monitor...
