Using DVI port for monitor?
Hey, I'm about to show my computer ignorance. My new flat panel monitor has both a VGA and DVI input. I've been using the VGA with my desktop since I bought it. But can I use the DVI input? My computer, from what I see, doesn't have a DVI output slot. Is that because the video card won't handle DVI?
So, I guess my question is, is there a way to hook up my desktop with the DVI output to my monitor. And even if I could somehow, would it make a difference in picture or would it be the same as VGA? Is it worth doing if I could?
Here are my specs:
Monitor: Acer AL2223W 22", Screen Resolution 1680x1050
Computer: Dell Dimension 3000. 3.0 GHZ, Pentium 4, 1 GB Memory, 80 MB Hard Drive, Windows XP Media Center,
Video Board - Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller, 96 MB
Thanks for the help.....
