2251P & DVI-D source to Displayport, using cable

HI I need some help I bought these cables to use with this video card and this monitor.  I get no video, what am I doing wrong?  Am I missing an adapter?  The source is the video cards output port which is DVI-D to a Displayport monitor.  I press the monitor button to switch to digital, but nothing happens.   Any help would be appreciated.
