Yep. You need a DVI connector on the adapter and on the panel. There
are quite a few video cards and panels that come with both analog and
digital DVI connectors these days, some quite reasonably priced.
I should mention that while DVI seems to be the prevalent connection
type I think there are others out there. Be sure to check on
compatibility between adapter and panel before you buy. I think you're
safe if they both have DVI support.
