I just recently acquired two of these monitors http://www.microcenter.com/product/460771/NC240_24_(Refurbished)_Widescreen_LCD_1080p_Monitor

I want to do a dual set up with them on my computer but do not know what I need. I am hoping to use as little amount of adaptors as possile and have the best quality.

Below I will post a picture off the inputs on the monitor and the back of my GPU. I only showed the dvi on the monitor because I didn't want to use the VGA. If possible I would like to pick up whatever I need from micro center.

So what cord/(s) do I need to connect it to my monitors? I can't find anything like that.

DVI cables are expensive at micro center so shop around or look in store.

Sometimes its better to get a monitor that comes with the DVI cables.
Alright thanks, would one be any better quality then the other? Also, I kinda rushed this purchased and didn't think about it.

I changed the link to a 10ft cable you will want a 6ft cable or more depending on how far your screens are from your tower. The other link was a 3ft cable which probably will be too short for most people. or go with the amazon link in the post above.
