Default D-Sub and DVI

How much difference is there? Im debating between these 2 monitors and wondering how much if any diff there is going to be between teh 2 connections.

This maybe a very stupid question but i dont know anything about monitor connections for the most part.


Thats the one with the dvi or this one

get the one with dvi, d-sub is normal vga i think. DVI is a digital format so your graphics card converts the digital signal to analog then the LCD monitor turns the analog signal to Digital again. There a lot of converting going on and sometimes it can be better to have a direct DVI link.

Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.
