Because in most places, cheap active DP to VGA adapters are much, much easier to acquire than cheap active DP to DVI adapters.

HD is a very LOW resolution. VGA can do stuff like 2560x1600@75hz. More than dual link DVI allows. And VGA can do that without any noticiable loss in image quality.
I think you might be losing your mind, just because I am at work and dont have time to dig up proof, I will ask a question instead. VGA came out in what the late 80's? If they are still far superior, and can handle such high resolutions without degradation, why have we switched to different connections? (DVI-D, HDMI, DP, Mini-DP)

I really wouldn't know. But I think it has loads to do with DVI being easier to put on the GPU, LCDs becoming popular (The LCD doesn't have to convert DVI into anything, but it does need to mess with VGA), and etc.

But the point is: With the proper functional setup, there is no difference.

Active ones, not passive.

Especially in finland, where this sort of enthusiast hardware is rarer. Not really too pricey, but rarer than in the USA. Most likely has to do with USA manifacturers not shipping stuff to finland.

EDIT: Oh and they aren't "far superior". They have more faults than DVI cables, such as interference with 15m+ cables. However, I'm just saying that with a normal cable, it looks exactly the same.

UNLESS your monitor does some post processing with every connection aside from VGA. Don't know any monitors that do this but televisions do this somewhat often
