They're both 24 pin but slightly different on the... side part... sorry about my n00bishness, and my rusty markup tag skills, just looking for a quick answer. Thanks!

The 4 extra pins that the video card has that the monitor don't are just for DVI to VGA adapters, its where the analog signal is sent.

Since the monitor doesn't have holes that will allow any DVI cable, you will need a DVI-D cable (or called a DVI 24+1).

Any of these should work, but check in the description first.

DVI-D or DVI-I cables would fit in your case. Dont bother to buy expensive cables, they will not give you advantage.
