    It's a digital signal myth, it'll make precisely no difference at all. Either the data gets to the monitor or it doesn't.

    Yea, if it was an analogue signal then it could make alot of difference. Since the voltage that would go through the cable/connectors would change which would change the data. With digital its either on or off (1 or 0)

    Does DVI really matter? Depends what GFX card you have. Plug a TFT into a Matrox Millenium 2 / G400 via analogue and you will experience 2d graphics that best that there have ever been. Plug in via DVI on your Nvidia card, and you won't. I would say swings and roundabouts. ATI and Nvidia still hvae below par image quality compared to the best (matrox) whether your using DVI or analogue.
