I searched around but couldn't find anything that answered my question - probably because no one else is as confused as me! - but I'm really confused about cables. I got the mini displayport to DVI adapter and was searching for the cable I would need to connect it to a monitor I have coming on Friday, which according to the specs has a DVI-D female socket in it. But the displayport adapter looks like it's dual link whereas I'm not sure whether the monitor is dual link or single. Can single link female take dual link male?! I can't seem to find any dual link to single link cables. If it's dual link, is this the kind of cable I need? Thank you so much if you can help me.
