Re: Connectors and wire.
If you ever decide not to buy pre-assembled cables, then be warned that you also have to buy the wire, crimp pins, and a crimper to actually make a cable (although having exact/custom length cables can be nice). Finding high strand count, small diameter (thus flexible) wire can be a bit difficult and expensive. There have been others to use cheapo/generic VGA pin crimpers from radioshack to successfully crimp the pins for the molex connectors, but I went with a cheap-ish crimper specific to molex crimp pins. There is a bit more in this thread, but it is only relevant if you are making your own cables (and yes, I was able to crimp 20AWG wire with those pins and crimper).
Please pardon the pedantry... and the profanity... and the convoluted speech pattern...
