DVI to VGA Performance effect?

So, I have an ATI HD 4890 card and the lovely Samsung 2233SW+ Full HD monitor. My resolution is 1920 x 1080.

Sadly the monitor doesn't come with a DVI D - DVI D cable. They ship only with a VGA cable. My question is, what will be the performance effect when connecting my graphic card to my monitor through the DVI-VGA Adapter + the VGA - VGA cable, over the direct DVI D - DVI D connection? I think there should be some performance drop. Want to know the details.

Anyway, am planning a DVI cable.

    the picture might not be as sharp with the analog signal as it would be with digital, and you'll need to do some extra calibrations, namely the clock and phase settings on the monitor itself, these will be automacigally correct when using digital connection but have to be manually adjusted when using analog...

    here's a good site with nice set of test pictures to get the most out of your monitor:

    I love how that article/author thinks that there are no signal issues on DVI. :lol:
