Default DVI vs VGA

Does anyone really think there is that much of a difference?? I am running my 6600GT via DVI cable to my LG 19" Flat Panel and dont really notice much of a difference. Just wondering what everyones opinion was. Thanks!!

There shouldn't be any competition. DVI over VGA anyday. Dependant on your monitor, DVI will be clearer.

DVI is clearer, but VGA is good. Of course, if you have DVI, use it.

Well to start off- DVI is digital, VGA is analog, the videocard your running would use a digital signal. So Im guessing it would run alittle smoother.

When it comes to proformance- i think only very high res DVD's would love DVI over VGA.

Your GPU is onboard, it's VGA, for sure.

Yeah, thinking of it I remember discussing my new monitor purchase and people were pointing out that it had no DVI, so its VGA I guess.

It's the one with the blue connector with the two screws on the ends.

That's VGA. And, I notice a big improvement with DVI.
