Ok, so I've asked this question before and everyone seems to be dancing around the answer... So I'm going to try and make it as simple as possible...

I have two monitors with hdmi ports on them. Well my graphics card only has one hdmi port... But my graphics card does have 2 DVI ports. But one is a dvi-I and one is a dvi-d port. What I was going to do is just get two hdmi to dvi cables. But people have told me they do not make dvi-I to hdmi cables... So how do I have a dual monitor set up with this graphics card

If I do that, will there be any difference in picture quality? Like I mean, will the monitor with just the hdmi cable have better picture quality than the one with the dvi to hdmi?

Can you give me a newegg link to a hdmi to dvi-d dual link cable? I've searched for them but couldn't find it on the site

This should solve your problem http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882241139, but don't buy it straight away I'm entirely certain so wait for somebody to agree.

Edit: Connect this new cable into your Dvi-D port (http://www.google.com.au/imgres?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&sa=N&tbo=d&biw=1920&bih=1018&tbm=isch&tbnid=gO4STkioaV-yVM:&imgrefurl=http://www.playtool.com/pages/dvicompat/dvi.html&docid=B_FyYI1Ee-eCMM&imgurl=http://www.playtool.com/pages/dvicompat/sldldvi.jpg&w=610&h=620&ei=kOXLUNCPJYnliAfx4IAY&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=323&vpy=113&dur=463&hovh=226&hovw=223&tx=147&ty=108&sig=105014771882692524502&page=1&tbnh=144&tbnw=142&start=0&ndsp=60&ved=1t:429,r:2,s:0,i:94) then connect your HDMI into your HDMI port then connect the rest into your displays.
