I'm picking up a Hanns-G HG216DPB 22" LCD monitor tomorrow. It appears it only has VGA and HDMI hook-ups on the back. So, my question is this; Can I use ONLY a DVI-D To HMDI Cable from the video card to the monitor? Or will I be forced to use the VGA? I don't have a video card, yet, but will be picking up an 8800GT or a 9600GT soon. Thanks.

Either a DVI-HDMI cable or an adapter.

Or you can do what my friend did and spend $100 on a Monster DVD-D to HDMI at Worst Buy. :headexplode:

Any advantage to using one of these if one's monitor has both HDMI and DVI inputs?

Nope, it's the same signal.

I'm using a DVI MALE to HDMI Female adapter with a 6' HDMI cable for my HP w2408h (24'' HDMI monitor).

Loss-less quality. About $15 total from newegg.

Just bought two of them since ther pretty cheap, got four hdmi's on my westinghouse 42 inch lcd tv so I'll be putting rig two hooked up to it also. Thanks for the link, this was a great deal, And a perfect upgrade for me. I have one of those dvi to hdmi converter ends, but I'm going to use this instead. I did buy the adapter at bestbuy but wasn't the monster one, but still was like thirty four bucks. :D
