Hello, I'm writing this to inquire about a new GPU I'm going to be getting and a question about the display cables. My current card has one display cable of each VGA, HDMI and DVI
MSI (Nvidia) GeForce GT 430:
My current monitor has hooked up to it a VGA cable. The GPU I'm looking at (MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk, which is MSI's take on a Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti) has 2 DVI-I connectors in the back and one mini-HDMI connector.
MSI (Nvidia GeForce) N560GTX-Ti Hawk:
Simple question: Why are there 2 DVI-I connectors? My monitor has one DVI output and no HDMI outputs at all. You can get a DVI-HDMI adapter but I'm wondering whether it's worth it.
Can I run the card functionally with one DVI cable connected into one of the DVI-I slots? Or will I have to get a DVI-HDMI adapter and plug my DVI into the HDMI slot?
Even then, will the one input to the HDMI slot be enough? Do I need more than one cable coming out of my GPU? I hate cables.
