Default DVI -D Vrs DVI -i

Hi I,m looking to purchase a Dell 2407WFP which supports DVi-D (Not DVi-i) Input while my graphics card nVidiea 9800 has two DVi-i output conenctors (No DVi-D).

I done some research with conlicting results so my question can these hardware devices be connected without any issues?

You won't have any problems as long as you use a DVI-D cable. The only difference between the 2 is that DVI-D is only digital, while DVI-I is both analog and digital. So as long as you transmit with a digital cable, (DVI-D cable) it'll work.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
