I have a flatscreen that has dvi and analog output and I have a video card with the same. When I make it DVI to DVI, I notice no difference in the display. Is there supposed to be a difference or do I need a super high power video card to notice it? I currently just have a generic 5300 evga card and a Samsung Syncmaster 930b.
DVI should give you higher quality, but it entirely depends on the source output. If it's standard broadcast quality that you're sending to the monitor, it can only put out standard broadcast quality. If it's a high-definition broadcast, the DVI cable will give you noticeably better quality.
I would recommend that you stick with the DVI.
Look at the edges of text, details in photos, etc. You'll notice a big difference.
You should get a slightly crisper image, with better colour definition.
You will notice a difference, but not that big of a difference, although it does depend on the amount of interferance your analog signal is getting.
It shouldn't make a big difference, DMI just improves the signal quality a little bit, and in some lower end video cards it actually only supports lower resolutions than the VGA interface...
Thanks for the answers. I guess now that I look a lot closer it does make just a little bit of a difference. I was under the impression that it might a huge difference. I just wanted to make sure.
DVI definitely gets you higher quality, but if you dont already have a DVI cable it may not be worth spending the $xxx for the slight up in quality for a good cable.
Today's A/D and D/A converters are very good, although DVI gives you 'loseless' digital signal.
cepher your sig is godly...i just had to say that
DVI Is better it is basically a HD supported adapter
