Could someone tell me what the cable on the right is:
http://tinyurl.com/2sq7m
Is that a DVI-I cable or something else. I'm planning on buying a 9800
Pro soon and I'd like to get one that comes with a DVI-I to DVI-D
*cable*. It seems like its hard to find these cables included with the
monitors and video cards I've purchased and been looking at. And since
they're not exactly cheap to buy, around $30-40, It'd be nice if one was
included.

Thanks.

The black cable in the pic is most likely a svideo-svideo cable. Yellow one
is a rca-rca cable. included in the pic is also a svideo-rca convertor
cable.
