Yes, all DVI connections from a GM965 chipset are connected via
ADD2/SDVO, there isn't any other way. The BTX motherboards have the
ADD2/SDVO chips on-board, ATX don't come with on-board DVI, so you plug
one into the PCI-E x16 slot

Nope, just get an ADD2-N DVI out card for your ATX motherboard and plug
it in.
