Default Display port cable and DVI-D cable in one..?

Do they make a Displayport cable that is a DVI-D cable connection on the other end?

I need to use the Display port connection on my MOBO and connect to the DVI-D connection on my monitor.
I ws told they make a cable that is a D.P connection on 1 end and DVi_D connection on the other end.

Can anyone rec. any brand?

DVI to DP is all DVI-D. DVI-I is DVI with an analog output for DVI to VGA connectors to work with VGA monitors. DVI-D is pure digital, and DP is digital.

Many companies make it, but I recommend getting the one with a cable on it like this.
