Default Re: Getting better video performance?

LCD VGA or DVI? if VGA get an xbox A/V converter to VGA and then you can use your monitor as a t.v... That is the best solution. It's like cutting out the middle man when buying a car. The quality isn't all jacked up and crappy and there is no BS.

Just get an LCD that will work with your video card, and will be able to connect to the XBOX. LCD's are great on your eyes, and you will get a much sharper picture compared to a CRT. Getting a new video card wouldn't help with get a better picture.

ummm, i think he said he has a LCD 18", right? Trust me, just get the converter and deal with unplugging and pluggin the monitor back in. It is a cheap solution too.

That is for a 360 but the same concept of what I am talking about. If you use the video card, youll never get a quality boost. Look at my specs, I tried what your doing and the quality is dog shit.. Get the converter.

Yeah your LCD is alrite. You might want to think about getting a new one though, because your LCD has a low contrast ratio, and the response time is 25 ms. Try getting a LCD with a 700:1 ratio, and a 8ms response time like this one.
