Would a DVI graphics card improve my TFT display?

  John B 07:24 07 May 2005

I have just bought a TFT display which has a DVI input. My current video card (rage fury 128)does not have a DVI output. Would I notice any improvement in the quality of the display if I upgraded the card. ( I don't use the PC to play games, if that's of any consequence). If so, any recommendations gratefully recieved.

Yes it should do. The display is brighter and sharper with a DVI connection.

I recall a posting recently, where it was said that they had compared both digital and analogue outputs to a TFT screen, and could see no real difference.

John B,

I,ve tried both when building systems for other people, and I've not noticed any discernable difference between the two.

In practice I have not noticed a difference although I do have it set up with a DVI now.

I use both with my Viewsonic TFT and I can guarantee that there is no difference whatsoever.

I think I'll stick with the setup I have and spend the money on something else!
