Cable Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I have some high quality 24k gold cables (one DVI-DVI and one HDMI-DVI) and am wondering which one I should use for a higher quality connection.

Monitor is in my system specs, as is GPU. HDMI-DVI connection would require a mini-HDMI-HDMI convertor (making it mini-HDMI - HDMI - DVI).

Thanks for reading.

DVI/HDMI doesn't matter the quality. You got ripped off, HEAVILY. only Analogue cables require good cable quality, of which DVI and HDMI are neither. If HDMI/DVI works, it works 100%. If it doesn't, it doesn't work at all, there is no quality loss.

That's not entirely true, but yes for the most part, any DVI or HDMI cable will work fine unless its broken.

HDMI and DVI have identical video connections. so far you're even.

HDMI has audio as well. That's a plus if it allows you to avoid a second cable, otherwise its still even.

HDMI is considerably smaller and that in itself is a blessing at times. +1

DVI has a more secure connection with the little screws. +1

So that leaves them even unless you can use the audio component of HDMI or you value small cables more than secure connections(or the other way around).
