  1. LCD Monitor-analog or digital?

    A friend who has a standard monitor now, is thinking about buying an LCD monitor. Should I steer her towards analog or digital? If it's digital, does she need to install a new video card?

    I would steer her towards digital as there are adaptors available (pretty cheap I might add) that allows you to connect a DB15 connection (Standard ole' VGA) to a DVI connection. That way she will have the benefit of going digital in the future if she desires. Both of the LCDs I bought even came with one of these adaptors. Also, many of the current cards on the market have both a DB15 and a DVI connector.

    Yeah i would definitely say go digital. Friends of mine who have LCDs tell me the difference on an LCD btw analog and digital is like night and day. So definitely go digital.

    From the prices that I saw on newegg, models which have adapters for both are not priced higher for this versatility.
