Default Monster HDMI cables

I recently upgraded my office system which is basicallly a high end graphics and editing suite now. I'm running two Samsung 22 inch LCD's into my ProMac with final video output being sent to my Vizio 50 inch HD Plasma. I had a few extra Monster DVI to HDMI cables lying around and planned to use them to route video from my computer to my HD Vizio monitor, that was until I realized the plastic 'Monster' ends were so large I couldn't physically fit more than one cable into each video card. Each of my video cards has dual monitor outputs so in essence the Monster stuff was cutting my capabilites in half just by their sheer girth. I thought about it and realized this wasn't the first time I've encountered this problem. I had a similar problem a few months back when I was breaking in a receiver for review and found that due to the tight spacing of the receiver's HDMI inputs the Monster HDMI cables would only fit if I used every other input. No other cable manufacturer seems to have this problem. Have any of you experienced this?
