DVI to HDMI Converter

Does anybody tried the "DVI to HDMI" converter in PC?

If I want to connect my SONY TV 32" D-series with HDMI component to my PC with DVI output component.
does this give my TV Higher Hz and better images than ordinary D-SUP?
OR is it better to use VGA card with HDMI support.

  1. I'm not sure I understand the question. I'm running my 3870 on a 26" tv with a standard DVI-HDMI cable @ 1280X800 and can go straight up to 1920X1080 if I wanted. I DO recall there being a proprietary adapter needed for the 4000s to allow both audio and video.

    Most TVs out there limit your PCs max res to 1024X768 thru the VGA port, or at least that's been my experience.
  2. ^ Samnsung's dont. A former roommate had one and I ran my 2nd pc on at 1080p over the vga port. My toshiba on the other hand only does 1368x768. It sucks for sure, but that's why I ordered a HDMI cable so that I could run it with my DVI -> HDMI adapter

    That's odd because I'm on a Samsung 26" LN-S2651D and it only allows a max of 1024X768 on it's VGA port. No issues with the HDMI and I have no idea about the component but I spent 3months struggling with the VGA at 1024X768 with a 7950GT, 8800GTS and a 3870.
