Shared LCD question Tags: Flat Panel Monitors LCD DVI VGA Peripherals Last response: September 23, 2002 2:23 AM in Computer Peripherals Share jayeff September 17, 2002 11:09:54 PM If you had a choice between getting a VGA to DVI adaptor, a KVM switcher, a VGA switcher, or upgrading(?) to a PC DVI 3D graphics card which would you go for on price vs peformance?? The goal is to run two platforms that are both currently VGA-out, into an LCD with a D-Sub port and a dual DVI-I digital/analog port. (The PC is currently running on a Siluro T400 VGA card by the way.) Jay More about : shared lcd question llewelyn September 20, 2002 3:05:45 PM LCDs are very signal sensitive. I tried this with a cheap VGA switcher which caused a lot of screen distortion. A graphics card with DVI would be definitely better.

Glad I didn't go the KVM route, £35 is one thing... DVI card it is then. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
