Am getting a used Dell 2005FPW in great shape - but the person who's selling it to me doesn't have a DVI cable so I need to score one off eBay or newegg or somewhere. Checked them out - and there seem to be hundreds of different listings for DVI cables.

What kind of a cable do I need?

And - I'm assuming it will have to mate to the DVI-to-MINI-DVI cable which comes with the Mac Minis?

Thanks for any suggestions or ideas.

Miguel

I use a Dell 2408WFP - works well.

You'll need a male-to-male DVI-D cable like this:

(and it will need your miniDVI-to-DVI adapter.)

Try Monoprice.com for cables, hard to beat their prices.

That eBay item was $1.50 (+$2.50 delivery). Impressed if they beat that, but maybe they're exceptional? Smile
