both are good. I am only wondering why the single-link cable cost more than the duallink cable. :weird:

they are both DVI-D cables (while the cheaper one is a DVI-D Duallink and the expensive one is a DVI-D singlelink). The duallink cable supports resolutions higher than 1920x1200 although your graphicscard should support duallink DVI output for those high resolution.

to make things less complicated..

both cables will work.
