    I am about to put together a games PC that will run through my panasonic ae100 projector. The PC will have a Radeon 9800Pro which I could connect to the projector via the standard d-sub VGA output or S-video?

    Which output will give me the highest quality?

    Also, do all PC games support widescreen these days?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    VGA will be far superior. As for widescreen most FPS games I have played recently have support for widescreen resolutions

    s vid is limited to the video standard so for PAL the resolution is 720x576 as optimal, higher it will be compressed !!

    SO for sure vga is better
    and the resolution has to be the same than the one from yout projector to make sure that no compression is applied from your projector

    to optimize DVI is the best, : digital all though the path !!

    VGA : digital in your computer, analog at the db15 socket and so in the cable, and put back to digital in you crt or projector : so for each signal transformation you are loosing quality :lesson:
