1 day left before I can Replace my Gtx 980 ti graphics card

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I am recently noticing that on some 4k videos I am getting pixelation. I'm not sure if it has to do with a Bad graphics card or is it my monitor I have a

Samsung led sa300 23 inch monitor I bought this in 2011.

Is there another way I can test my Graphics card to make sure it's not defective?


and btw Is dvi to dvi better then vga with dvi adpater to dvi better?

DVI-only is far better. I was forced to use a VGA adapter for a week because my cable died and I had to order a new one, and it sucked. Everything was blurrier. I couldn't stand it.

 

What is the exact brand and model of your power supply? I don't know if I know this yet.

 

I have another question: how is the quality of your wall outlet and the power coming out of it? Do you ever have any problems?

It's a computer!

Two cables I have a vga cable and I have plugged in the vga cable into my monitor and the other end that goes into the video card is plugged in with a dvi adapter. So your saying I should buy a dvi cable so then I can plug my monitor into dvi and the graphics also via dvi ? so then it would improve the quality??


I have a corsair 850 tx

not sure about the wall outlet power

Oh wait, I meant that the death of my DVI cable forced me to use a VGA cable with a DVI adapter on the video card (my video card doesn't have a VGA connector on it). My bad. Yeah, it was all blurry and I hated it. When I was finally able to use the new DVI cable that I ordered, the blurriness went away entirely and everything went back to being pleasant.

 

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I had inferior gaming performance and inferior smooth scrolling on the VGA cable as well. All in all, I hated the VGA-only experience!

 

You will love going DVI-only.

 

Don't spend too much on the cable though. If you can order from MonoPrice.com, then please do so:

 

https://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=102&cp_id=10209&cs_id=1020902&p_id=2408&seq=1&format=2

 

These are extremely high-quality cables, but their price is low due to having absolutely no "middle men".

They are all basically the same. I use a HDMI to dvi and a dvi to dvi and dvi to vga

No difference

but if someone only has a vga port on his monitor and is using a vga to dvi adapter to plug it into the video card which only takes dvi.
post #9 of 15

Then why did I experience such a stark difference between VGA-only and DVI-only?

 

Also, Adam, if your monitor doesn't have a DVI port, then you'll still be on VGA. So, don't expect the same experience that I had.
