Default DVI to HDMI conversion

Hola amigos

i'm lookin at buying this DLP HDTV in the next day or so. as you can see in my sig, i've got a 7900GT which has 2 DVI out's. the tv i'm lookin at (Clicky Clicky ) has 2 HDMI in's. I've found some cables that go DVI to HDMI (DVI-HDMI Conversion Cable ) and i've seen a DVI to HDMI converter (cant find the site) that u use a HDMI cable with.

Anyone know which way is better? converting in the cable or convert then attach a cable?

the less connections the better..

so most likely getting the cable with one end DVI and the other HDMI is better... with the converter you introduce more distortions due to the more connections...

tell me how it goes cuz just last week i bought an HDTV for the world cup and was thinking of hooking up my comp to it... see how CS looks, hehe... i'm not sure about the refresh rates...
