LCD with D-sub connector to DVI-I

by amcmillan / August 4, 2006 9:06 AM PDT

Good Day,

I am building a new PC and I purchased an AOC LM760 LCD 17" LCD. However it has a D-sub connector only and my Video Card has both VGA and DVI-I connector. The package contains a DVI to VGA adapter. My question is will my LCD show an improvement once I have used the adapter to the DVI-I rather than the VGA connector. I know that some LCD's do the conversion from analog to digital within their electronics, however in this case will the LCD know that it is a digital input it is connecting to or will try to use the analog circuitry. Will I see a difference.

the lcd will probably auto-switch to the proper input. if not, enter the menu and manually aim at the appropriate input.

as soon as i hit submit, i finally understood your question. you shouldn't see any improvement using the dvi connector with a dvi-vga adapter, so just plug the monitor directly into the vga (analog) output.
