I have a new Dell Vostro with a 256 ATI Radeon HD 3450 graphic card with a DVI single output(DVI,VGA,HDMI). I want to buy a new monitor that will give me the sharpest images for reading text and secondly graphics. HP 2207 is the sharpest 22" I saw but its not a DVI. Should I pass?
And does anyone have any suggestions for a 22" DVI monitor that won't break the bank.

DVI/HDMI will result in a better picture than VGA - that is certain (unless something is faulty). However, the difference can be marginal.
My neighbour has a two-year-old monitor plugged into a nine-year-old computer and the picture is absolutely perfect - I've looked at it very closely indeed and it is flawless. Also, he's running Windows 2000 so there is no-clear-type fuzziness to make it difficult to judge.
On the other hand, my sister has a new monitor plugged into an oldish computer (VGA) and the picture is no more than ok.
