not true...true VGA can defiantely support 1080P. in fact it even supports another res even about 1080P forget what it is...but either way.
the TRUE difference...one is analog signal and one is digital...this means NOTHING at the res of 1920X1080 but digital can carry a much higher resolution because of the increased bandwidth. FOR YOUR SITUATION...the only noticable difference you will have from VGA or HDMI is if you start using cables that are longer than 2meters or longer than 6 feet (metric vs imperial
) analog signal will deteriorate much faster over a longer cable that digital obviously. the only thing you'll notice in correlation to that is you will have more "digital noise" in your image which looks like static channel mixed in with whatever your watching...the more digital noise the more "staticy" the picture will look...honestly you won't notice digital noise until you're probably close to 30 feet of VGA cable...but you understand where I'm getting
