Most of the low profile cards that I have seen have a dual link DVI 
port, they generally ship with a small cable that splits it out to two 
for you.  I've actually found that it's fairly hard to buy the cable 
individually because they all ship with it.

I found out that the DOLA guys in Fyshwick have a whole box of them 
though, they give one out to anyone who wins an auction there and asks 
for it.  You could probably talk them out of a few for a couple of bucks.
