DVI can make a huge difference, yes, since its a Digital signal.

If both your monitor and video card supports it, go for it

"However, when connected via a digital connection, often labeled DVI (for Digital Visual Interface), no digital-to-analog conversion is required, and there should be no loss or corruption of the signal. As a result, when running at its native resolution, an LCD should give you a cleaner and crisper image than you'd see on a CRT. "

I hope this helps.

Oh my god, please get DVI!!!! No second thoughts please. I compared a DVI and a regular analog RGB and let me tell you the difference is very noticeable (visually). More crisp and clear. It just look so darn sharp like a CRT display. Analog gives you a fuzzy visual which looks ugly.
