    I think the main diff is that one has 1 DVI & one D-sub, and the other has 2 DVI.

    They look almost the same to me. I'd get the one with the two DVIs though.

    It depends on what monitor(s) you are gonna hook up to it. Like Jesse said, though, you might as well get the one with 2 DVI cuz even if you gotta hook up a VGA monitor, it comes with adapters. I guess they work...

    also, the 2 DVI one is cheaper

    I got an analog CRT hooked up to a 7900GT with a an adapter, so yes they do work.
