because i saw both of them at the same time just today at ''bestbuy'',
one monitor was connected to an HDMI cable,another was just DVI,guys,that was a difference between those 2 monitors!
btw i think this is a good time to change my old video card,its ATi Radeon HD 2400 pro,with a highest resolution of 1440 by 900 pixels,i`m not sure about this card but i think this is the cause of my "dry eye" of using this monitor and computer over 3 years.I`m such a nooby in it. any suggestion would be really appreciate,thnx

Based on what you are saying, I assume you are implying that the one connected via HDMI looks better than the one connected via DVI? If that's the case then you need to specifically state that. This is not the game show "Jeopardy" you know.

HDMI and DVI are basically the same connection, but the pins are arranged differently and HDMI can also carry audio as well. Now it is possible that the DVI port on the video card and/or the monitor is/are defective. The point is, if everything is working properly, there should be no image quality difference between the two connections.

I just bought in Person at Best Buy a new LCD monitor. A LG W2340VG
It rocks. I never liked my 3 year old Dell 20inch. Its white , was very yellow.
This model is glossy. My driving games, dirt2, NFS shift are way more 'sweet' now.
Great upgrade for me. I turned a couple of display models over , to make sure I bought one with the correct available connections, that I wanted.
I hate to say this, but BB probably wanted to sell you , one of their expensive HDMI cables.
