How does a VGA to DVI converter work?

Recommended Posts

Hey OCC.

 

I'm picking up a second screen for my PC tomorrow - The plan is to use my TV as one screen and a proper not-eye-destroying 24 inch monitor as the other. I'm going for HDMI as my main choice of connector but will be fine with DVI or DisplayPort as a backup.

 

The plan is to use both my GPU and my processors iGPU to render a screen each simultaneously, but if I can't get this to work then I'll need to fall back on my GPU, which only has the single HDMI port, 3 DisplayPort connectors and 1 DVI connector.

 

I'm looking at a really nice curved Samsung monitor for ~

You want a DVI->HDMI converter for that monitor. Don't run VGA unless you absolutely have to.
