Anyway you reckon it's worth a try with the other XFX converter?
The make of the converter really should not matter.

Yeah the only reason I made a point of the make was it says XFX on the converter and I've seen Belkin ones, etc. thought perhaps some were better quality than others. You'd expect XFX to be pretty good though.

You guys think it could be that my monitor isn't DVI compatible? Or is DVI not a format just a method of connection if you get what I mean. Is DVI just a different type of video port and a converter will make it the same as a standard VGA or is it actually a different format?
