Nvidia GeForce 8500GT vs ATI Radeon HD 4200 Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: November 15, 2010 9:19 AM in Graphics & Displays Share fasteronfire525 November 14, 2010 4:12:28 PM I'm looking to hook my desktop up to my Sony Bravia 32"LCD TV for movies and gaming, and while trying to decide which output to use, I came across this dillema. I have a Gigabyte MA785GMT-UD2H Motherboard with an onboard ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card. The motherboard has VGA, DVI, and HDMI outputs. I am currently using an Nvidia GeForce 8500GT, which offers VGA, DVI, and S-Video outputs. My TV has VGA, HDMI, and and component inputs. I have been using the 8500 via a VGA cable and an audio cable, but I was thinking of switching to my onboard 4200 so I can use one HDMI cable. How do these two options compare? Is one of these options clearly superior? Should I purchase a DVI to component cable and test each of them? Thanks in advance?
