Dual link dvi questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Will a dual link dvi cable be able to plug into a single link dvi port? Single dvi cable in dual port?

Will dvi give me better resolutions over vga?

Thanks in advance to all posters

You can plug any DVI plug into any DVI port, however single link DVI has a max resolution of 1920x1200 while dual link DVI provides resolution beyond that.

DVI>VGA, you will have more resolution including HD resolutions
