    No, Digital vs. Analog is the difference, and it's not noticable.

    Well, monitors with DVI connections are LCDs, and I wouldn't recommend getting a CRT now, unless really tight on budget.
  2. DVI is theoretically better than VGA.

    However, as we all know;

    "Theoretically there's no difference between theory and in practice... but in practice there is"

    DVI tends to be easier to get a good picture - VGA can produce exactly the same good picture if you spend some time setting it up.

    >Monitors with DVI connections are LCDs

    Not necessarily, there are a few CRTs with DVIs. Also, CRTs still have better colour reproduction and blacks than LCDs. I know a lot of graphics designers keep CRTs because they like the colour reproduction.
  3. thanks - i will make sure the monitor has dvi input. after all, easier to change graphics card than monitor.
