Videocard/Monitor connection types
Just so everyone knows, (or if they care at all ) I put together this little list comparing the connections for monitors with connections for televisions and home theaters.
From worst to best...
-Composite video: BNC-1 (which is long obsolete)
-S-Video: 15-pin D-SUB VGA (most likely what you are using)
-Component video: BNC-3 (BNC-4 and BNC-5 are better as they seperate the sync)
-And of course, the King of the Hill, for Home Theater as well as monitors... DVI
These are of course the mainstream connections, there are probably some others that i have never heard of...
I have heard that some CRT's have DVI-A (high-resolution analog) but they are extremely rare.
So for LCD's, the highest quality picture is of course thru DVI-I (DVI-D),
and for CRT's, the best you can get (without a DVI-A input on your monitor) is a DVI-A > BNC-5 connection...
Sorry for the ramble, I just thought this was all oh-so interesting.
