Hi y'all,

Need advice on a monitor connections.

My current monitor is an aged NEC (7 years). Today I upgraded.

Though I was certain I would buy another NEC, this morning I received an email-deal for the new Dell U2413 - $509+free shipping. Until this morning, I had vacillated between the NEC PA271W-BK, and the Dell 2713H. But today's deal was good enough that I rethought my selection and bought the U2413.

TMI - sorry about that...The point is, for a 27" monitor, I needed a mini-DisplayPort / Thunderbolt + USB to Dual-Link DVI Adapter to achieve 2560 x 1440 resolution.

However, since the U2413's maximum resolution is 1920x1200, which cable will suffice for full resolution? Any recommendations on brand for said cable, and links appreciated.

What are you editing on that the monitor will connect to, a PC or a Mac?  What ports does it have available for video?

The monitor will likely include a DVI Single Link cable.  That's what my Dells have always arrived with even though they have also had a Displayport.
