DVI versus VGA - Is DVI worth it?
Dead pixels, contrast, ghosting, small text...etc..

My 19 inch ViewSonic CRT is going blurry pretty much all over now. It has served me well over the past few years and will find it's place as my aux sceren for TV.

I am looking for a 19 inch LCD and here is my main question...

What ~IF~ any difference is there between a VGA and a DVI connector?

I play WOW (World of Warcraft) occasionally but I'm not a hard hard gamer. I'm thinking of sticking with 8ms as there aren't many complaints of ghosting (in general) on newegg.

I am concerned mostly about small text...as of course I am a web designer and developer and I hand code everything in notepad.

I like a highly bright and highly contrasting screen...

I ~REALLY~ think the dead pixel policys are exceedingly dumb and so last century but I'm going with Newegg in the end.

I upgraded to all lcd this year. General rule is all digital is better, but some panels have been reviewed as having great results through analog.

Research before you buy.

Dead pixels? Return/replace policy?

How does text display?

Any details or just the warning that I already had in mind?

I notice no difference between analog and digital audio...so would I really notice the difference as far as video goes? What WOULD that difference be?

One difference might be resolution. Some LCDs will display a higher resolution in digital mode than they will in analog.

Wouldn't the first thing to consider be is your video card DVI compatible?

If you buy a DVI monitor and only have analog output in your video card then what is the point?

If you are planning to upgrade both, then go ahead and get a monitor that supports both. I have a princeton 19" that support DVI/Analog, and I do not notice any difference.
