Hello. So, i have a monitor that has a HDMI port. My graphics card also has a hdmi port as well but, i am going to have to dual monitor set up, and my graphics card only has two dvi ports. So what i plan to do is just buy 2 dvi to hdmi cables. But i know, that there is a dvi-i and a dvi-d port. Well i dont know which one is on my graphics card, and newegg only says it has two dvi ports. So can anyone tell me if this graphics card has a dvi-i or a dvi-d port on it?

Heres the graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The one below the exhaust is DVI-D and the one below the HDMI is DVI-I.

The card already has an HDMI connection... You can also see in the pictures on newegg it has a DVI-I and a DVI-D connection.

I don't think there even are any DVI-I to HDMI cables, as there's not any point to the extra pins as they are only for analog

Does your monitor have a dvi port as well?
Some some monitors benefit from DVI-D a lot more than they do HDMI.

So if there are no dvi-i to hdmi cables, how will i hook up *two* monitors to this graphics card?
