    I have looked at my DVI socket on my PC and determined that it is DVI-I (is this pretty standard?).
    Does this mean I can use a DVI-D OR a DVI-I cable to connect to plasma screen? Does one offer better quality than the other?

    Thanks.

    Yes.

    If your screen has a DVI-D socket then you wont be able to put a DVI-I connector into it.

    If it has a DVI-I then you can chose either.

    For preference use a DVI-D cable, single or dual.

    I don't think I've seen a normal consumer card with a DVI-D, they do exist on high-end profession workstation type devices but you'd not spend >£1K to watch DVDs. :)

    As for quality, I assume you know the difference betwen them, the quality is the same since DVI-I is simpy a superset of DVI-D.
