Good morning forum! I Have a quick question. My DSO rig is on it's way Awesome and I just want to make sure I have the proper cable. Im currently useing 2x SLI gtx 680 4gb and the monitor I have for the time being is a Dell u2412M. I do minor graphic design and rendering along with intensive gaming. My question is, the dvi cable that came with my monitor is a single link, I believe? I see some people say go with a dual for the bandwidth. Does it really matter or can I stick with the cable I have now?
Thanks for any input.

Good morning   BShizzle....   For that monitor a single link is fine.   The dual link is for higher res like 2560x1600.    The single link has space between 2 x9 pin count and the dual link is filled in with 6 more pins.    

Enjoy when it arrives.
