You have a double thread going.

I don't think it would work but I could be wrong.

Nvidia owners can't display 120 Hz on the Samsung 750 which only has a DP. I'm sure if it was possible they'd be doing it. Instead they've been getting either an AMD card or a GTX 570 2.5GB HD card with DP connection.

I think you can try Atlona AT-DP400 adapter (which converts Dual Link DVI to mini DP).  Then, of course, you will need to use a mini DP to DP cable (eg Atlona AT13021-2 cable ) for connection to your monitor's DP input.

Someone has used the DP400 to connect a GTX275 to Samsung S23A750D and the 120Hz works.

I've never done it that way round only the opposite tongue.gif but to run 120hz through a dp - dvi-i at 120hz would require an active (ie powered) adapter. not sure if the same would be true in reverse or even if it would be possible in reverse.
