    I've done the research on the web and so know, in theory, that DVI is better than VGA, but have found plenty of references that say you're hard pressed to tell the difference between VGA and DVI when connecting to modern LCD monitors.

    So, what's the real benefit of DVI connectivity - what does it give you over and above VGA for normal monitor usage? Dual screen capability is one, but anything else? Is it a mature IT standard that's about to replace VGA, or is it one of the volatile High Definition standards that are currently fighting it out for supremacy?

    Ta.

    DVI is a pure digital signal. Graphics card is digital, monitor is digital, signal goes digitally. VGA on other hand is analog so gets converted etc etc. A in a nutshell definition there, trust me you would have to have a really crap monitor and card not to see a difference.

    DVI has been out for years.
