Diff. Between DVI and VGA [D-SUB] cables.

Hi all,
Can you tell me what is the Different between those two ?
1.VGA
2.DVI cables.
I know that they looks different than each other ._. but is there any difference within the performence of them ?
pls let me know.
TY :)

  1. DVI is a digital cable, while VGA is Analog. DVI-I has analog as well, but that is the only version of DVI with analog.

    There are performance differences between the cables, but not at the resolutions we use today. Some newer resolutions are reaching VGA's bandwidth limit, which will be the reason VGA is eventually phased out. If you have a DVI and VGA port, I would recommend you use the DVI port, as it is the newer standard.

    This states it better than i would be able to in this thread...

    DVI is a higher quality signal over VGA, to answer your question.

    That's not necessarily true, DVI has a higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions, but that does not mean that VGA is a bad cable. DVI is better because there is no conversion to analog signal (i.e. D->A->D), the signal source never changes. At standard resolutions, there would be no noticeable difference.

    Seems like you're a good monitor expert :D
    TY :clin:
  5. will it make difference at 1600 x 900 resolution ??

    No, I tend to use DVI cables as I often encounter interference with analog cables, if the power cable for the monitor is near it. It causes some distortion on the screen, you go not get this with digital.
