    Umm, yeah seems to be missing some holes or a guide blade....

    There is a gray slash on the left where a guide blade should go if you look closely.

    May be soem proprietary Dell crap. Does it have an adapter plug maybe? (Hopefully)

    'proprietary' = Dell, Fijitsu, , IBM, Apple etc. Fact of life, they want to bleed you dry of every last penny even though they look as if they are giving you a good deal to start with. When you want to upgrade, most of the time you need to buy crap of them!!!

    I'm drunk so ignore this post if you want ;)

    SPeedY_B has a 2405FPW plugged into his PowerMac. He might be able to shed some light on it. :)

    looks like he used flash and it bleached out the rest of the port - those ports are shiny remember - dell doenst do proprietarty until you get into the server arena.

    Tell your friend to turn off the flash and send the photo again :D

    Yeah, that photo was really waaay bleached.

    After using some Photoshop enhancing thingies you can now see that the port is most likely a DVI-D dual link port. Which means that a DVI-I cable won't fit.

    Zedric wins clever cookie of the month award :D

    Displays don't use proprietary tech. Wrt Dell generally the mobo's and a few internal connectors are proprietary, everything else conforms to tech for the consumer side for the most part.

    Hey, I've just realised that I ordered a gfx card with dual DVI-I ports, but my monitor only has vga and DVI-D connections on it. Will I be able to connect my monitor to the gfx card when I receive it? Or will there be an adapter supplied to change the connections so that it can fit my monitor?

    Your graphics card probably won't come with a DVI-I cable, so so far no problem. If your monitor had a DVI cable, it must have been a DVI-D, which will fit in a DVI-I connector.

    If you only have a VGA cable however, there is most likely one or two DVI-I to VGA adapters packages with your graphics card (if you bought a retail package and not bulk/oem) that you can use.
