    Not sure which forum is best so I'll stick it in here.

    I have a 10 metre VGA cable running from my PC to the media box on my plasma.
    Previously when I tried it the picture quality was rubbish; so much so that I never bothered using it.
    I considered getting a shorter/better quality cable but never got around to it (where do you get those from anyway - round tuits?)
    That was with my old NVidia GE Force 2 64MB graphics card in the PC.

    I've just upgraded to a Sapphire Atlantis 9600 128MB and it's like a revelation!
    The quality is superb and I can quite easily use the plasma for email, surfing, documents, spreadsheets, etc.
    Image quality is excellent with no bleeding, fuzziness, etc.
    For a very reasonable outlay of £50, this has to be one of the best upgrades I have ever made.

    What is puzzling though is the plasma only supports 2 resolutions, 1280 x 768 being the maximum.
    I run my TFT at 1600 x 1200 and yet I can still see a portion of the screen on the plasma.
    Not sure how it works but it does.
    Of course, if I want to see the whole desktop I have to change the resolution to 1280 x 768.

    Happy days.
