Shared LCD question

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.)

  1. 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.
  2. Agree, If you want the best performance avoid adapters, and switch boxes.

  3. Jesus you weren't wrong about the signal quality, VGA switchers are pants. Two kick arse systems in wobblevision. Glad I didn't go the KVM route, £35 is one thing...

    DVI card it is then.
