Default Need to buy a DVI cable

Hello All

A simple dummy question. (most likely)

On a new system build I will be using a Samsung 931B LCD. It only came with a VGA cable and I'd like to buy a DVI cable from Newegg with the rest of my build. (I think I'll save on shipping getting it all together)

I'll be using the onboard video from this motherboard. - BIOSTAR TForce TF7025-M2 AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

What cable do I need to get?

This is what I was considering, I just needed 3-6" and wanted to get black so it matched the rest of the build. - KINAMAX 6 ft. DVI Dual link Gold Plated Connectors Cable Model CB-DVIM - Retail

Any help is appreciated.

Actually, any DVI cable will do.

So the one above for $6 is fine for what I need?

I just saw some different models listed with more or less pins etc. I really hate to have to spend shipping mailing back the wrong cable
