I have recently purchased a Lenovo W520. This has a Core i7 with NVIDIA QUADRO and NVIDIA Optimus. The video ports are VGA and DisplayPort.
My existing monitor is a Planar PX2710MW. It has inputs for VGA, DVI and HDMI. My previous computer had a DVI connection.
I have a VGA cable currently connecting the laptop to the display. Would I get a better picture if I switch to the DisplayPort and convert it to either HDMI or DVI? Would DVI or HDMI work better in this conversion?
I have searched and found a lot of technical comparisons between the interfaces but not a lot on comparing the actual output through a conversion.
I do some gaming but mainly use my computer for productivity, graphing, science, and financial modeling. I spend all day and part of the night on the computer due to work and personal. Anything to make it easier on my old eyes will help.
