Display Cables Battle Royale: D-Sub vs DVI vs HDMI
November 17, 2011 10:12 PM Subscribe
I've a monitor with DVI-D and D-Sub input. My graphics card has DVI-D, D-Sub and HDMI output. I'm connected via D-Sub right now, but I hear DVI gives better image quality. Is this true? And does HDMI have better quality than DVI? If so, would an HDMI-to-DVI cable give me better quality than vanilla DVI?

This is how I imagine it:
HDMI > HDMI-to-DVI > DVI > D-Sub/VGA
Is this right, or am I missing something? Should I get myself a DVI cable and an HDMI-to-DVI adapter?
