  1. Need Geforce 4 info

    I want to buy a geforce 4. Before I do however, I want to know exactly what the terms "vivo" and "dvi" mean. I assume "tv-out" is the ability to connect the card to a TV and use it as a monitor or to watch dvd's on it? Is "vivo" similar to this?

    Hey Tony

    DVI (Digital Video Interface) is a specification created by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) to accommodate analog and digital monitors with a single connector. There are three different DVI configurations: DVI-A, designed for analog signals, DVI-D, designed for digital signals, and DVI-I (integrated), designed for both analog and digital signals.

    VIVO is video in video out so you would have the option of sending a television signal out or recieving one and viewing it on your computer.
