Okay so, I plan on getting two identical dual monitors.
The gpu I plan to run these off of is a GTX 650ti boost
This GPU has the following ports
1x MHdmi(with hdmi converter)
1x Dvi-d
1x Dvi-i ( with vga converter)

I'm looking into buying two monitors (VG2236WM-LED) that both have these following ports
1x dvi-i
1x vga

What are my options on available adapters to use both screens as a dual monitor? The whole male to female concept has me confused on rather or not the communication from my gpu to screen works correctly involving dvi D and rather or not to go for something like a dvi D to dvi I adapter etc.

Of course, I can just use the DVI flat out for one of the montiors, But the connection for the second monitor has be puzzled on what the best possible option could be.

All help is appreciated, Thanks!

Dvi-i just has extra pins for analog (for a passive vga adapter) but it still has the same digital signal when just using dvi-d cable in it. It's really the most versatile dvi port with it being compatible with all dvi.
