  1. Hi everyone!
    I have NVIDIA 9500GT VGA card which have a DVI-I port and my monitor has DVI-D port, so which DVI cable should I use between these two ports? Is there any DIV-I to DVI-D cable available or can I just use DVI-D to DVI-D cable???
    Thanks!

    DVI-I is compatible with either DVI-D or DVI-A, since your monitor has a DVI-D port both a DVI-D or DVI-I cable will work. The other conisderation is whether or not your monitor requires a dual link connection which would require a dual link DVI cable.

    What is the difference between DVI-I and DVI-D?

    You'll be fine with a standard DVI cable.
