If neither your monitor or GPU have HDMI slots, why do you want a HDMI cable?

Edit : My monitor dosent have any HDMI slots so i assume my monitor dosent support HDMI ?
however, my graphic card do support HDMI. It comes with an adapter.

So i wont be able to get a HDMI quality unless i get a new monitor which supports HDMI ?

If your GPU doesn't have a HDMI slot then you'd have to go VGA --> HDMI --> VGA, that's just silly.

Why not DVI?

EDIT: Just saw your ninja post, if your monitor doesn't have HDMI input then I'd say it doesn't support it.

I'm not sure HDMI to VGA cable will work, HDMI is digital and VGA is analog.

Correct, you would need a new monitor for HDMI quality.

Does your monitor support DVI?

Oh, true, I didn't even think of that.

There's no way you can pass all that digital-goodness through an analog connection.

Wow.. People.. Just don't post if you don't know the sure answer, or at least say that you're not sure


@crazy: If an adapter comes with the GPU, it'll work most likely. Just plug it in and view the goodness. VGA delivers just as good quality as HDMI would. VGA supports 2380x1440 displays without any interference or image quality loss issues. It can easily support your 1920x1080 or whatever. Just make sure the VGA cable you use isn't faulty.


Why not just use a DVI slot though? Less hassle.

No, i think what he is looking for is a boost in the res of tv, IN case U cant u need a new tv.
If your Video card had dvi out to a hdmi then yes your NEW tv can use it. BUt for sound. Some cards need a extar hookup for sound. Now for your needs now. Your video card should have a Spidf out. You can convert that to rca out. I think you can force to 1024-764 (if not more) THen run a headphone to rca out. (like ipod hook up to stario) More info like tv and gpu would be nice. But most of us understand what u need.

He CLEARLY stated that he wanted to use a HDMI to VGA adapter from his GPU to his monitor (NOT TV). He asked if the performance and the quality will be the same. THEY WILL.

I don't know what you are talking 'bout there...
