Is There Really A Difference
Posted 06 December 2005 - 12:53 AM
Now the reason for this is that I was debating on getting a VGA adaptor for the xbox instead of using the HD cables. Does any one know how much this would improve the quality of my gaming experiance? Is there really a difference between HD and VGA if run at the same resolutions? I allways thought that VGA or DVI were the cream of the crop and then I hear HD is just as good? whats the deal anyone know?

As for component vs. VGA, they are both analog, and they are both good.
Personally I'd stick with component, but some people swear by VGA. If you have jaggies with component, you'll have them with VGA too. Won't make a difference on jaggies. Get a copy of Amped 2 (720p native) or Enter the Matrix and see what you think.
I wouldn't think the XBOX would look much worse than your computer at 640x480, but do remember, the XBOX is a 700MHz old PC. It has killer graphics for 4 years ago. It won't keep up with a 3-D card in your computer that is current. Today's 3D cards can do a lot more realtime AA and oversampling to smooth things out then they could 4 years ago.

DVI is much better than VGA.
That's debatable. On a high-end monitor with a good analogue to digital converter, the difference is negligable.
Kenosto004 - In regards to using your Xbox, I would stick with the component connection. If you get yourself a VGA transcoder box, you won't notice any improvement because it's simply converting a component signal into a VGA signal.
True VGA from the source, like from the Dreamcast and Xbox360 will look much better picture quality wise than the Xbox.
