wow another missing message in the post...
in any case if what you mean is use a monitor that has VGA input using the DVI output with an adaptor, you will find no change in quality as the digital signal is converted to analog, so thus it is meant soley to be used if u want to use dual monitors
DVI is for digital monitors which i have yet to see one

If your monitor has a DVI input, then you'll see a significantly crisper picture than with VGA.
I have a Planar 18.1" LCD with both analog and DVI inputs, and will never switch back to analog. A requirement for any TV or monitor I buy will be digital inputs.

I run Dvi on my home TFT (viewsonic 19" 191b) and on my work screen LG 17" flattron 782.
once you have converted to digital - analogue just doesn't compare anymore. the digital picture quality is incredible

That might have been true a couple of years ago, but not with recent TFT screens.
Older TFT's used to have a problem with slow refresh rates which caused problems on games & dvd's, but some of the latest screens from NEc have refresh rates around 16Ms, most other vendors are around 25Ms

now the thing is should it b better to get the reg. card or a aiw card "all in wonder"
i guess that depends if u want to sacrsfice the dvi for two vga right?
Apr 13 2004, 08:34 AM
most ati cards can use both the dvi & the vga to provide dual head capability - so go with thte dvi option
