Dual link is just so you can run 2 monitors. Kinda like just a port extension, which the splitter would then plug into.

Not a bad thing to have. But not 100% necessary.

Na.. dual link cables allow higher data transfer rates. I was looking at the difference between the two the other day. For resolutions above something like 2048x1536 you need a dual link DVI cable.

You're right but at 1680x1050 you would be fine with single link. Easiest way to check is amount and layout of the pins on your monitor to see what is compatible or read the manual if you have it.

Look at the diagram here

I bought a dual link off ebay for like 5 quid from America.. It turned up in 4 working days and is perfect really. No issues at all on quality.

If your monitor has the pin layout of dual link then it will more than likely be compatible with the monitor.

Edit: Just checked [URL="http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/2007WFP/en/ug/about.htm#Bottom%20View"]here[/URL] and your monitor will take a dual link cable (24 pin).
