Basic and simple question. I need a DVI cable to go from my GTX 560ti to my Acer P215h monitor. I am currently using a VGA converter but I need the VGA cable for another monitor and I need to get a DVI cable anyways. I am just not sure about which cable I need. I don't know what the different kinds are/mean as far as "-D", "-A", "-I", single-link vs dual-link. I went to RadioShack and they wanted $35 for a 6 foot cable and I wasn't even sure it would work right and I wasn't about to spend that much money on one.
In the manual it looks like it is a DVI-D dual-link and says "connect the 24-pin DVI cable" but I just want to make sure I get the right one. On the specs page for the 215
it says "DVI-D Input (DVI w/HDCP), DVI-D Input + HDMI(w/HDCP)" but on the specs for the 215h
it says "VGA DVI (w/HDCP) HDMI (w/HDCP)". I am pretty confused.

I just need a 6-ft cable and both Newegg and Amazon are fine. Thanks in advance!
