My VGA viewsonic automatically adjusts the screen to fit perfectly, I cannot change it myself to make it look at all better.

Also, I tried it out against an LG DVI hookup to see which was better, and I personally believe the VGA is the exact same if not better image than the DVI, there is no where near the length needed to corrupt an analog signal and it is a shielded cable so there is not much worry about interference as is.

i have dual monitor with my laptop and an old crt monitor and without the crt my laptop screen seems cramped like it hasnt got enough space for me to work on properly as i usually have two programs open at the same time. I even sometimes watch a film and play a game at the same time when really bored lol but whilst my desktop can manage that easily my laptop does struggle if the game as any more graphically intensive then worms 2d.

dual (or more ) monitors are great. it's very useful to have two full screens to work on. it increases productivity through multitasking and you no longer have to flick between windows all the time when comparing documents. in some applications people need the "desktop" space.
