Default Anyone use the DVI-VGA adapters?

Hey guys, I just got another video card, and the VGA adapter ended up busting. The card is modded like crazy, and it's just how I want it (except for the Broken VGA adapter). So instead of RMAing it right away, I wanted to ask if there is any Performance/Image Quality loss when using a DVI-VGA adapter?

Thanks,

Default Minimal difference

You've not mentioned what monitor you're using and the difference in results will depend on the monitor. I have a monitor which is capable of both analog and digital input (both at 1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz) and the difference is minimal. the most notable thing is that I need to press the auto adjust button every now and again when using the analog input otherwise the picture positioning goes out slightly. This is never an issue using the DVI connector. My card is an AIW Radeon 8500DV on this machine with the ATI provided adapter.

ATI Technologies That is indeed a monitor issue

If the monitor in question is a CRT (computer sort, as opposed to a TV), *absolutely no difference*. In fact, I have *two* DVI-to-VGA dongles (one from my AIW 9700 Pro, the other from the 8500DV it replaced) and can actually use them interchangeably. (Both the AIWs have DVI-out, and neither has a VGA-out.) The difference, if any, would be apparent if the monitor in question had both sorts of *inputs*, and that isn't common for computer-grade CRTs (however, it isn't common for computer-grade LCDs, either, which tend to have either one *or* the other, not both).

In fact, neither AIW has ever known a true DVI display.
