Absolute no-brainer.


Either the digital cable delivers the 1's and 0's or it doesn't.

Signal quality and interference aren't even an issues like they

can be with analog signals. Get the cheap one.

Any DVI-D or DVI-I male-to-male cable will work.

Single Link will fit your needs, dual link will have

extra pins that won't be used for any current equipment

but may be used in the future (high def dvd players?)

and it's only an extra buck or two, so it's your choice

if you want to spend the little extra money to take

a gamble on "futureproofing" your cables.


I bought the exact cable you're asking about,

and mine works great.

The same holds for optical cables. Buy the cheapest ones you can find.

You're wasting your money if you don't.

An argument could at least be made that higher-end component cables

might perform better than some others, but I'm not one to make such

arguments.


Does someone else want to offer some brands for component cables?


Personally I tend to buy the "higher-end" RadioShack brand gold connector

cables for most of my A/V needs. (I put "higher-end" in quotes because

they don't really qualify as high-end, but they are the higher of the two

lines that RadioShack puts their name on.)
