Just get a VGA cable. You are never going to get HDMI quality through a VGA input so get used to the idea that unless you but a new monitor you are stuck with VGA and its limitations..

Whether the screen is LCD, LED, CRT or any other kind of screen i irrelevant It is the input socket that is the only thing that matters.

As stated previous, a HDMI to VGA cable is just adding another layer of conversion that you can do withwout.

Are you sure you are looking at VGA cables.

Data rate has no relevance in analogue VGA cables nor does resolution have much to do with the cable. That is a function of the video card and monitor.

Post a link to the cables concerned. I suspect you are misinterpreting the information you are being given.

See the following: http://geek-easy.com/wp-content/upl...

My guess is you're asking about HDMI rather than VGA?

EDIT: apparently you are asking about VGA. Don't know why you're still using it? VGA carries an analog signal only, DVI carries both analog & digital, HDMI is strictly digital. Digital is generally preferred these days. If you need VGA, the cheapest cable will do.

I don't know why they are quoting mbps for a VGA cable, it is totally meaningless.

Having said that, the one linked will do the job.

"my lcd tft moniter only have a vga port"

It must be pretty old. Just buy the cheapest VGA cable you can find.
