Confused about DVI
I've just brought a new PC with a AMD Radeon™ HD 6450 graphics card. It says it has a Dual-link DVI with HDCP port.
I'm looking at buying this monitor to go with it
DELL Dell IN2030M 20'' (51cm) HD WLED Widescreen Monitor VGA & DVI-D (1600x900) Black : Dell Monitors | Dell UK
It says it has a DVI-D port.
Now I've done some research and Dual-Link DVI appears to have a different connector to Single Link DVI.
So my question is, is a Single Link DVI monitor compatible with a Dual Link DVI graphics card, and if so what cable do I need ?

almost all connections for consumer level graphics cards, including onboard audio, uses DVI-I outputs, which have DVI-A and DVI-D capability, so it WILL work.
Single Link and Dual Link, have more to do with the resolution output capabilities of the video cards and monitors.
otherwise, it will work on your monitor.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
