    I am going to be buying a new monitor on newegg and I am planning on buying a DVI cable to go with it.. I just double checked my graphics card and its a Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition. It supports DVI-I.. so I went and researched what DVI-I is and found out it supports both analog and digital.. but I can't find any cable that will go DVI-I to DVI-D.. I was planning on buying this cable: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16812189047 I was wondering if maybe DVI-D works with DVI-I with no special cable needed.. Can anyone help me? I am really confused.

    all dvi connectors are the same, DVI-I is a superset of DVI-D that includes the analog signal, moniters tend to come with DVI cables btw.
