You can plug into any DVI port, the graphics card will detect which one is plugged in and which one is not. Vice versa. Maybe the first one? It all depends on personal preference.

There is a difference.
Plug into the top port. That's dvi-d. The bottom one is for dvi-i. The difference is that dvi-d is a strict digital interface and dvi-i can take either take a dvi-d cable or a dvi-a (analog) cable. Digital is better when it comes to your graphics card and monitor.

Images are included there so you can tell the difference between them easily.

And the card turn around or in whatever position, look at the cable and match it with the holes on the port tongue.gif

EDIT: The cable you linked in DVI-D.
Look closer at the circled part:
