Its kind of unclear what you are having issue with. The onlything that would make the card not compatible with the rest of your computer is if your motherboard did not have a PCI-E slot.

The type of port for video output on the card should not effect anything.

DVI-I is just DVI-D (digtal) + DVI-A (analogue)

So DVI-I, DVI-D and DVI-A cables will all work in a DVI-I socket.

Therefore if your monitor has a DVI-D socket all you need is a DVI-D to DVI-D cables as you only need the digital (DVI-D) part of the DVI-I socket.
