I just bought a new desktop with a good 64 mb video card that offers both analog and digital (DVI) connectors. I want to buy a flat panel monitor, but I don't know which (analog or digital) will take greatest advantage of my video card. I am trying out the Samsung 770 TFT, and so far its ok, but its analog only, and I am wondering if I am missing something by not having a monitor that can connect to the DVI on my video card. Can anyone tell me if I would get better experience with a DVI monitor?

Yes you will get a better picture if you use digital, other wise you convert from digital to analog then back to digital @ the monitor. If you use the digital port you can stay straight digital right to the monitor avoiding things like distortion, etc.

Definitely digital. Video cards are now starting to come with DVI Out which is good for HDTV and Flat Panel owners.

Slightly. The big advantage though is NO INTERFERENCE. Where I work, there are guys running around with high band radios that disrupts my workstation's monitor ALL the TIME! It's annoying. Then the frigin microwave goes on near by and that screws it up too.
