So, my BENQ XL2411z monitor does not have a display port. On this monitor, only DVI-D Dual Link supports 144hz, HDMI does not. The problem is that my GS65 only has a miniDisplayPort, so I need to find an adapter that will connect the MDP to DVI-D DL which I am having trouble to find. I am willing to spend upwards of $100 for any cable that will connect these and give me 120 or 144hz.

After lots of research, I think I need a mini-DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual Link (Male or Female) Active Adapter.
I have tracked down this one which looks like it will be able to do 120hz. Can anyone confirm that this would work? Or does anyone know of any better options?

Edit: I found this cable that claims to be an active adapter that would bridge the gap from DP to DVI-D Dual Link. I don't think it will support 120 or 144hz though, can anyone confirm my suspicions?

TLDR: Can someone find me a miniDP to DVI-D Dual Link Active Adapter that supports 120 or 144hz?
