Default Re: Connecting PC to 37" LCD HDTV - what cable is the best?

Best possible picture is a digital connection and the native resolution of the LCD TV. Iīm not sure why the frequency should be any different between DVI and HDMI (both are 60Hz IIRC) but I think you should try the digital connection first and only if you encounter problems go for the VGA connection.

Cables are not that expensive and you might actually need a HDMI-DVI cable (or seperate HDMI-DVI adapter) one day anyway. Just donīt fall for the $100 HDMI cables, any $10 cable will do just fine and you wonīt notice a PQ difference unless maybe the cable is really really long.

Intel I7-920 aircooled by Prolimatech Megahalems @ 3.8Ghz (200x19) | Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R | OCZ Platinum 3x2GB DDR3-1600 RAM (7-7-7-24) @ 1600 | Gainward GTX 480 | WD Raptor 74GB + 150GB + Samsung 1TB | Soundblaster X-Fi Platinum | Corsair AX850 Gold | Coolermaster Stacker 830 silver | Logitech Z-5500 Digital 5.1 | Logitech G15 keyboard | Logitech G25 Racing Wheel | Sharp LC-46 XL1E (gaming and work)
