Hi, I have a HP w2007v 20" monitor. It only has a D-Sub Analog port (VGA port) and no DVI or HDMI. Im very soon going to upgrade my graphics card from a Nvidia GTS250 to a ATI 6870.

Only question i have is will it have an impact on the card performance? or is is purely the quality of the image that will be effected?

Sorry if this is the wrong sub-category, i could not find a Monitor section.

You can get a HDMI/DVI to D-Sub connector. That would work.

I know that, that's not the question. Image quality, brightness, performance, and so on

There is a marginal loss. But nothing that is noticeable and worth worrying about.

Is that a marginal loss in performance? or image quality? or both?

Losing image quality is somewhat the same as saying losing the performance, and vice versa, isn't it?

As i said, you wont notice the difference!

Loosing performance is lower FPS in games / lower bench scores / smaller overclocking gains.
Loosing image quality effects brightness, HD video, 2D/3D windows applications, graphics designing (i assume).

Either way I'm hoping to get a new Sumsung 24" early in the new year so i guess ill find out for myself what the diff is...

Your image quality should be the same as it is with the current card(since you are already running analog). There should be no performance difference(the card will run as normal, just convert the image to analog on card).

I currently have a system connected analog(Digital is taken by another computer) to a 5770 with no performance issues. The image is just to say slightly more blurry, but that is to be expected.

Analog only suffers image loss at very very high resolutions or with really long or cheap cables. I've run them both side by side on identical monitors at 1080p in cloned mode watching a blu-ray rip, and there is no noticable difference.
