Is there a Dual Link DVI 24-pin to HDMI cable available? If so I want to run it from my video card to my Samsung "42"" High Definition Plasma TV w/ Integrated Tuner". Model: HPS4233

Thanks man! I got it at Sam's Club Warehouse for only $1,333.00 Tax Free!
The thing even has an intergrated HD Tuner! :D As for if it can run a Dual Link 24-Pin DVI to HDMI connection...I'm not sure. I do know that someone here will have the answer tomorrow hopefully. On a positive note, I love the tech savy knowledge base of the NVIDIA Forum! :D You guys are always here to teach me something new!

Knowledge is power!

Is a dual link DVI cable really needed?
It should work with a normal DVI to HDMI cable because 1920x1080 works with a normal DVI port/cable.

Or have you tried that already?I don't think dual DVI link is needed, the max resolution on this model is only 1024X768 pixel, compared to 1920x1080 pixels on true 1080p HDTV.
It is even less compared to most 720p, 1080i TVs usually with 1366x766 pixels resolution

I don't think such low resolution on 42" large display is realy good choice for PC monitor.

I'm using it for the XBox 360 which is running it at 1080i It wouln't run on 1080p but it can run at 720p and 1080i I would like to run other stuff from the pc when Microsoft Windows Vista comes out.
I use the Dell 30" Ultrasharp monitor for all my computing needs not the Samsung 42" Plasma.
