video connector for macbook

This is probably a trivial question but I want to connect my MacBook to a projector and I don't know which cable to buy. I know I need a mini-DVI to _____ cable but I'm not sure what the other side should be. The projector has a video input port exactly like the ones on an external PC monitor but I am not sure what it is called. Any help would be great.

VGA is a uniformly pinned rhombus shape.

DVI has a big group of pins and a smaller group of four or so to the side.

DisplayPort... I don't know what that looks like.

Most projectors use VGA because it works on all computer [some with an adapter] and most projectors are XGA or less.
