DVI and Analogue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is probably a daft question but I have just switched back to pcs and wanted to know which connection to use. My graphics card has an analogue and DVI output, should I connect both cables or just the DVI one?

Thanks.

Yes, dont connect both, it is very hard on your monitor.

If you have a LCD, use the DVI
If you have a CRT, doesnt really matter... But yes, use the DVI in 99% of the cases.
