Question Any screened/shielded cable from header port to VGA D-sub ?

Do shielded/screened video cables from the VGA D-Sub slot to the VGA header port on the motherboard exist? I have ASUS WS C422 PRO/SE (2066) mainboard and my current cable is unshielded and I see lots of interference noise of the screen (probably, but not completely surely, due to the missing shielding) when using the VGA video output.

I doubt it. That is a proprietary implementation, that is intended to provide "crash cart" access for boot or troubleshooting. I wouldn't recommend using VGA for anything more.

@kanewolf Of course the VGA standard is outdated, but the costs of living have gone up, so I save money and will have to live, at least for a while, with an old (and still perfectly usable) VGA monitor. What exactly is it that you call proprietary?

The hundreds of millions of normal unshielded cables that have been used around the world don't seem to have this interference issue.
I've certainly never heard of it.

I'd look elsewhere for what the problem might be.
