TFT monitor with on-board graphics.

I have just read that running a TFT monitor with on-board graphics is not recommended as it degrades the picture quality of the monitor.

As I was going to use this setup for a system I am building for my brother, does anyone have experience of running a TFT with on-board graphics and if so did it affect the picture quality?

Sir Radfordin, thanks for the reply. I have never used a TFT screen and know little about them so any info on this is welcome.

It makes no difference if it will connect to graphics port

Thanks I am some way to feeling more confident about the TFT with on-board graphics after your replies. I never thought about the systems that supply both on-board graphics and a TFT so thanks for that.

woodchip I know that TFT's will work with on-board graphics but I had read that it can degrade the picture.

You need to make sure of the connector, that it will fit your comp monitor outlet. As they do vary
