I want to get the upcoming AMD Radeon Fury cards, but it seems that they only output to DisplayPort or the inferior HDMI. Unfortunately, my monitor only supports DVI input, which hasn't been a problem until now.


I understand that there are DP->DVI adapters, but will I be able to still get 1680x1050 @ 120Hz using those adapters? Will they significantly affect my response time? What is the difference between "active" and "passive" adapters?


120Hz refresh is very important to me, and I would obviously prefer to not have to get a new monitor in addition to a new graphics card.
