G4 GeForce 4 Ti 4600 DVI-I or DVI-D?

Running a G4 Mirrored Drive Door with the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 128mb video card and want to grab a new monitor off newegg (that has DVI-D) but not sure if my card runs DVI-I or DVI-D. I know it has an ADC slot as well but im looking for info on the DVI slot. Im not at home or i would look myself. Ive tried to do some searching but i get both answers. Anyone know off hand?

I am not 100% sure, but I do believe it is DVI-I
Most Apple branded adapters are DVI-I based too (like the DVI to VGA adapters..)

But, again, not 100% sure. Educated guess...

EIDT:
But, doesn't a "male" DVI-D plug (monitor) fit on both an DVI-D and DVI-I "females"?

so i just looked around a bit more and learned that DVI-I ports are DVI-D with the four extra square holes to accept a VGA/DVI adapter in case you had an older vga monitor.

so in other words, all DVI-I ports will accept a DVI-D cable.

hope this helps someone else!
