Samsung B2030 resolution and cable

  1. Hi guys!

    My old 17" CRT monitor failed yesterday and my Dad bought me a 20" Samsing B2030. The maximum supported resolution (recommended) is 1600x900.

    However, to me, the display doesn't look as clear or smooth as my CRT! Maybe it's just that I was used to it for so long.

    The monitor has support for DVI and VGA but came only with a VGA cable. Does a DVI cable improve the display? Is it because I'm using a VGA cable that my resolution isn't that sharp?

    Also, when my monitor powers up it says "Analog Source". It's attached to the Radeon HD 4890 by means of a VGA adapter.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    The VGA output is analog. DVI is a digital connection and the picture may look better when using a DVI cable.
