Is DVI better than VGA? — 6 Comments

  1. I have just purchased a Samsung Monitor 2333SW and although my video card says it is capable of resolution higher than 1920 x 1080 when I try to use it I have black on both sides of my monitor and the faces look long I am only a novice my card is NVIDIA Riva TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro.Some one told me you can get a card that can screw into the motherboard and then enable you to connect the DVI cable will this be worthwhile? Or should I be getting an updated Video Card and if so which one Many Thanks Liz

  2. Hello D. Stenberg,

    the riva tnt2 is very very old. You need to upgrade your video card.

    There is a problem however: your PC can probably accept AGP video cards… but I would strongly suggest you get a PCI Express video card… which means upgrading your motherboard, CPU, RAM, etc…

    In summary: to get the most out of your monitor, you will probably need to upgrade your whole computer (or get a new one!)

  3. I understand what you are saying and I would love to get a new computer but I wont be in the near future so I will just have to use it on 1280 x 768 and the photos appear to be correct at least it fills the whole screen I will inquire about a new video card.Thanks Liz
