Agreed.  In posting that, I didn't mean to be doing any
scaremongering.  I mostly found it to be usefull information on the
DVI spec.

I don't at all think that people should shun nvidia and buy only ati
cards for dvi now, indeed, I think nvidia cards have better drivers,
and thus may be a better option.  If you're planning a setup with long
cable runs and/or high resolution, you might look for an nvidia card
with an external dvi chip, as they seem to be better than the one in
the gpu.

Another thing that may affect things is how good the chip in the
display is at decoding a bad signal.
