ATM I'm replacing my Maximus V Gene that had to be RMA'd, so I'm currently using my laptop and it only has HDMI out.

I happen to have a Catleap that only has a DL-DVI port on it...the only thing I wanted to make sure is each of these cables can work in reverse, right? For ex: if it's label DVI>HDMI, it will also work HDMI>DVI. I'm sure it does, but just wanted someone to affirm :P

I'm thinking this should work great for 2560x1440 up to 60Hz. Yeah?

Isn't HDMI limited to 1920x1200 resolution or something like that? I don't think HDMI connection is capable of driving 2560x1440.
Phosphorus? Pfffft, who needs 'em??

HDMI 1.3 supports up to 1600p. A cable that has one end with dual-link DVI should be fast enough. It depends on whether or not your laptop actually supports it. If it is newer it should.
