Z2 to PC Connection

Apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere.

I'm looking for the best way to connect the Z2 to a PC.

The distance is around 7 - 10 m

Currently my PC only has a VGA card but looking to future proof.

Should i go for

(a) DVI-I to DVI-I cable, and purchase a seperate DVI-I -> VGA adaptor
(b) DVI-I to VGA cable
(c) DVI-D to DVI-D (does Z2 accept this ??)

I've read elsewhere that there are possible problems with this length of cable. Are there any (inexpensive) alternatives ??. As the Z2 is ceiling mounted I can't really shorten the length.

Thanks

I have used an inexpensive 10m dvi - dvi cable with very good results.

i cannot see any difference if i move the pc closer and use a more expensive 2m cable.

i got my 10m cable from http://www.cpc.com for around the £12.00 mark.

worth a try before blowing £80.00 on a slightly better one on paper anyway..

try it you might save yourself some cash...

That's your best best, it'll be cheaper than DVI-I and you don't need the extra potential noise generation of the anaolog circuits you'll not be using .. I use DVI-D for my Z2.
