Hi folks just a quick simple one

Graphics card is 1280MB Gainward GTX 570 Phantom, 40nm, 1950MHz GDDR5, GPU 750MHz, Shader 1600MHz, 480 Cores, DP/HDMI
Tha cad has 1 x HDMI and 2 x Dual link DVI

Screens are Iiyama ProLite B2409HDS 24" monitors x 2 (dual screen)
Analog input connector D-Sub Digital input connector HDMI, DVI-D

Ok simple question using both the DVI sockets on the graphics Card is it better to go DVI to HDMI on the screens or DVI to DVI on the screens ?
Is it ok to mix cables or dont matter ....as in one screen cable DVI to DVI and other screen DVI to HDMI or is it better to use same type cable on both screens

Are there any advantages or diss advantages to ither type Cabble ?

(at mo running one of each)

Thanks there
