    Hi all

    I have a Radeon Card 9600 with both DVI and VGA output, and an Epson projector which unfortunately accepts only VGA input. Would there be a difference in picture quality between using the supplied DVI-to-VGA convertor (and VGA cable)and just a VGA cable to connect my PC and projector?

    Also, for 5m run, is there a significant difference between Belkin Pro High Integrity VGA cable at ebuyer (http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=21883) and Lindy Premium Gold S-VGA cable (http://www.lindy.com/uk/productfolder/03/37247/index.php) ?

    Many thanks.

    Those DVI-D to VGA dongles are not convertors just adaptors . The DVI-D connector has analogue vga on a second set of connectors. The dongle you have just turns this into a normal vga socket.

    I couldn't see any difference on the radeon VE I used to have feeding vga to a plasma and projector. One via the adaptor one via the hardwired socket.

    Meant DVI-I sorry

    I read that the vga has extra filters that are not on the dvi out.

    Is the extra filter on the vga better then? or worse because it filters out some necessary signals?

    Don't see why it would have filters. I'm pretty sure the dvi-i port just has a normal RGBHV output on the analogue pins.

    More filters is worse as I recall..........

    AS I read somewhere, the RGBHV of the DVI is cleaner :smashin:
