    What kind of cable connection do I need to connect this to my PC, which has a DVI graphics card ?

    No problem, and no need to be sorry. Not everyone knows about MRoogle and its powers. We just spread the word.

    It is much easier if you have a video card with DisplayPort or even Mini-DisplayPort. The price of the active DVI adapter ranks up there with the price of an entirely new card with those ports! :eek:

    I believe that Palit was the only vendor that made GTX 460's with DisplayPort. You are already high up on the charts to look for a replacement that is under $250.

    I know ZOTAC also sells nVidia cards with DisplayPort. Not sure if the 460s have them or not tho.
