I have a 1920x1080 monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate. It has a vga connector and a dvi-d connector. My PC outputs in either vga or hdmi.

If I switch from a VGA cable to a cable with one end that's HDMI and another end that's DVI-D Dual link, will my I get a better graphic quality? I'm already using speakers, so the audio isn't an issue.

Well, I got my HDMI cable as a mobile operator's gift and things got a little better back in time, though half people then told me it doesn't really matter. Well, my eye is kinda' accurate, despite of one little skotoma :D

DVI-to HDMI is still generally better than VGA. How much better I don't know. For a cheap adapter cable like this I'd say it's worth trying it.

I switched from VGA to DVI but didn't see any appreciable difference (but I'm not a gamer so that could be relevant).
Just try it and judge for yourself like I did. After all, it only involves buying a cable not a new monitor!
I'm going to have to think about it. I didn't want to spend a lot on a monitor, but I don't want to get the cable if it wasn't going to do much. I just realized it would be really nice to get the speaker clutter of my desk, so that's also something to consider.

Such an adapter costs probably 1 to 4 euro around there. You decide. Ofc it is not the thing like from 720p to 1080p resolution, but you may notice a bit clearer things and your eyes to tire a little slower. Who knows.
