    im looking for a dvi cable to connect my laptop to my projector. both are
    dvi-d.
    ive noticed that some dvi-d cables seem to have less pins than others.i believe these are called single link. there is nothing in any of the instructions for either machine on cables. is this type of cable ok?
    also i have seen a cheapish dvi-i cable, would this work?
    thanks

    You won't need dual link.
    Single link DVI uses a 165 MHz transmitter to provide resolutions up to 1920x1080 at 60Hz.
    In the unlikely event that you need greater than this, e.g. 1920x1080 at 85 Hz, dual link can do it; however, the equipment at each end of the link would have to have 2 transmitters and 2 receivers to make use of it.
