I purchased a HDMI to DVI cable to use with this adapter but it doesn't fit.   It looks like there are three output connections 1 DVI and two slots that look like HDMI but I haven't seen that many HDMI ports so I'm not sure.   The cable end on the cable I purchased looks like it takes a straight slot but the male slot on the video card is shaped like this   [   (turned sideways).   Does anyone know what the deal is?

Looks to me like the 3600 can have the following outputs on it

¿Two integrated dual-link DVI display outputs
¿Two integrated DisplayPort™ outputs
¿HDMI output support

The ports that "look like HDMI" are likely DisplayPorts which require their own adaptor.

An example DisplayPort to DVI cable
