I was given this computer about 2 years ago, after googling photos of monitor ports, it seems to match a DVI-I Dual Link.  I have a flatscreen TV that I use for my current setup that has the standard, outdated monitor port that is probably AVI.

 

The photo of my new computer port is below, and I'm also including a link (ebay link) to the cable that seems like it will work going from my new computers port to my standard AVI port on my TV.

 

I just hate to have to wait for the cable to ship, then have it not work.  Paying $5 for a cable on ebay seems a lot better than $20-$30 at Fry's or Discount Electronics.

 

Thanks.

EDIT:  Thanks JohnC_21:)

 

Not sure if the graphics card has an HDMI Port, the computer was given to me by a noteworthy gaming production company, I took a photo of the other ports and here they are:

Hello, and Welcome,

 

Yes it is. But DVI-I will only give video, no audio. If you want video/audio to the TV you would want a HDMI port on the computer graphics card (and TV). Your cable will work because you have DVI-I. If it was DVI-D it would not work.
