Hello All,
I have mainly always looked to the computer hardware on my builds and have not really given my monitors any second glances. However, I am trying to look into this more as I am upgrading my system. Yes the monitor I am using now is using a VGA cord =).

Not to show my ignorance, but is switching to using a HDMI cable instead of using a VGA (or even DVI) cable beneficial? I am thinking specifically towards gaming.

Thank you and hopefully I put this question in the right spot.

Depends on what you're using. LCD? CRT? Yes, for the most part, digital is better than analog as a connector.

Really depend of your monitor, some DVI can do 144hz, can do 2560x1600 resolution, etc...

Going from analogue (VGA not DVI) to HDMI you could see a difference in text precision and maybe other aspect, but DVI could be really similar.

Thank you all for the feed back. I went ahead and ordered an HDMI cable to find out for myself.
