    ok, wanna connect a Radeon 9000 or 9500 DVI output to my Pioneer 433MXE DVI input, what cable do I need? Will a DVI-D cable do or do I need a DVI-I one? I think the output on the graphics card is DVI-I but if I understand it right you can use a DVI-D cable anyway. Once that's cleared up anywhere recommend a good reasonably priced cable?

    Cheers

    Best bet is a DVI-D cable from lindy.co.uk .

    Wouldn't recommend anything past 7.5m though, depending on your plasma's resolution.

    Most likly male/male, or at least mine is, normally male/female is an extension.

    The ATI end is definitly male.
