P2412H, cable for connecting to video card mDP port?

Jump to solution

Hello!

I got a Dell P2412H  and I would like to connect it to the mDP port on a Nvidia P1000 video card. The P2412H only has a DVI-D SL and VGA ports. I believe I need two cables to achieve this?

1. The DVI cable that should have been included in the box wasn't as I bought a refurbished item

2. A mDP to DVI-D SL adapter

Does anybody know the Dell Part numbers for these items?

Help would be appreciated.

@dball79  There are entire mDP to DVI cables, so you don't necessarily have to go with a mDP to DVI adapter plus a DVI cable -- and unless you already have one of those items, a single cable would make more sense.  You also don't need Dell-branded versions of these items.  If you're in the US, here is an example of a cable that would serve your purpose, made by a vendor (Cable Matters) that has a solid reputation for quality products.  I buy a lot of their cables and they've never let me down.  If you're not in the US, you should still be able to find this type of item somewhere.
