DVI connector

  s99Raj 13:24 25 May 2005

I have a graphics card with both an analog and a DVI connector, and it came with an adaptor.

The monitor I'm looking to buy is the Viewsonic VE902M which seems to have only a 15 pin VGA socket. Will a VGA/DVI adaptor (to the graphics card) be any good or better with this? i.e. if I connect the monitor through the adaptor to the DVI socket on the graphics card will I get a good a picture than if the monitor had DVI too?

Why doesn't such a recent monitor have DVI anyway? Can anyone recommend a good 19 inch monitor with DVI?

Reports on this forum have indicated that the difference between DVI and analogue is mostly negligible so if you are expecting a DVI connection to be a revelation I believe you will be disappointed.

Thanks but those are far too expensive for me.

My main question is that if I stick the VGA plug from the monitor into the VGA-to-DVI adaptor, will I get a good a picture as if I had a DVI connection on the monitor? Otherwise what's the point of the adapter?

I see (SEASHANY) so there's nothing amazing about DVI then? I've just bought a graphics card with both DVI and VGa connectors hoping the DVI mwould be much clearer or better in some way.

Does anyone have any views on ViewSonic monitors?
