|Older video cards seem to have trouble driving DVI monitors at resolutions above 1600x1200. Back in 2004, I was the first kid on the block to have a 24" 1920x1200 LCD on my desk. Unfortunately, the Radeon 9800 Pro I was using at the time just couldn't run the thing at its full resolution over DVI, so I had to use VGA. It wasn't till I upgraded to the Radeon X850XT I could run the monitor at its native resolution over DVI. |
However, with thick, shielded cable, you can get a very sharp 1920x1200 picture out of the old VGA port.
