Question on DVI Cables Which One For Dell 2405FPW LCD 1605
Thanks to all for the info. Others have said that this monitor comes with both a DVI and VGA cable. But I checked with Dell BEFORE I placed the actual order, and they told me it only comes with a VGA cable. Maybe this is because the monitor is on sale for $799 for a limited time (no PC or other purchase required). Or it could be because my sales rep was giving me WRONG information.
So I bought the "optional-recommended" Belkin PureAV HDTV-Dual Link DVI 8-foot cable. It says it's a 24-pin cable, but doesn't say anything about DVI-I or other types of DVI connections. It's supposed to block interference and cross-talk, and the dual-link provides high bandwidth for true HDTV quality. I have no doubt it's a good cable, for the price. And Dell told me THIS cable would work. It cost an additional $89.00, and I wanted to get a good cable to work with the monitor, especially since I'll be using it for detailed high-rez video and photo editing.

People like you, who think they know all, and have everything figured out, really bug me...

don't know where you are seeing that price, but here is a link to dell.co.uk that lists a 2gb module compatible with your system for £242.79...
But I have no idea how much better, if any, it is over the DVI cable you folks say IS INCLUDED with the monitor. AND I HAVE NO IDEA IF THIS CABLE WILL ACTUALLY WORK, given the specs (or lack thereof, and how confusing they are). Again, Dell told me a DVI cable IS NOT INCLUDED, only VGA, before I placed the order.
I printed a copy of my transcript with Dell, which was from their on-line chat sales info screen, where they told me a DVI cable WAS NOT included. If I find I get an "included" DVI cable, AND if I find there is not enough difference in quality to justify the extra $89 for the Belkin cable, I'll ask for a refund, and free shipping to return the item.
Thanks again to all you responded to my question, and for your help and advice. Much appreciated.
