Default good dvi cable

Just received the monitor that i'm going to be using for my build and it didn't come with a DVI cable. After looking on newegg, it doesn't seem the card I want comes with one either but comes with a dvi-vga adapter. Well, I really don't want to use that since I've heard it has some performance drops. So what is a good, but cheap, DVI cable to get from new egg? I've looked at a view and a lot of people talk about duel-link and I don't know if I need that or what.

DVI cable... shouldn't vari all that much....
I'd think any cable would do
and unless you are powering a screen thats larger than 1900 x 1200 (resolution)
you shouldn't need dual-link

get a good cable cheap of ebay, you will notice the contrast diference, i have one good cable on one monitor and one bad cable on the other its very distinct. its not the monitor either, as i can switch the cables and then the other monitor looks bad and the bad one looks good.
