    Hi
    I need to buy a dvi cable but i'm not sure which one.
    My Pc Graphics card is the Nvidia 6600GT with DVI-I out and the tv is a Acer AT3201W with DVI-D(HDCP) .
    Am i right i thinking i need a dvi-d to dvi-d cable ?
    Also is any brand of cable recommended over another ie Ixos/Profigold etc ?

    Thanks in advance for any help :thumbsup:
    I did the usual search but couldn't find a definite answer

    You need to be cearful with the length of DVI cables, if your looking at 8 Meter or over they can cause problems. Supra are bringing out a new version of their DVI cable in the next few weeks as the longer length cables could cause artefacts within the picture. Stay away from cheap long length DVI cables :eek:

    A DVI-D to DVI-D cable will be ideal for your set up.

    Your choice of cable will be governed by the resolution your wanting to run and over what cable length.

    Molex do very decent low cost cables up to 5m or there are lots of premier brands in lengths up to and well over 5m - see banner adds around this page.

    Best regards
