  1. I have a acer 21 inch monitor and just notice I can use DVI-D, but wanted to know the difference and is it worth upgrading over VGA?

    Also can someone help me find them, best buy and newegg is only places I want to shop.
    Couldn't find them at best buy at the site for some reason.
    Thanks

    Do you have DVI output on the PC? Your monitor may support DVI, but that doesn't mean your PC does.

    Here are the DVI Cables at Newegg.

    DVI is digital, VGA is analogue. Like the difference in TV signal.

    DVI should be used if it's available, the image is cleaner, clearer, crisper, text is better.
