    DVI is the bigger connector on the graphic card. It's also the one with more pins in the connector. If your LCD monitor supports DVI, you should use a DVI cable to connect between your graphic card and minitor.

    it's al'rite. checking that is too chim for me. luckily a cheap graphic card is not that expensive, so i changed it for the cheapest i can get.

    If you're not technically inclined, go Funan Laser, Fuwell or Chamoxa to get the cable. Less people, less BS. Costs around $10 depending on the quality. For your setup, there is no difference for a standard length one. You may have to restart the PC after switching cables.

    See the sharpness like it should

    my samsung widescreen comes with both video and DVI cables when I bought it. So do check if you have the DVI cable in the box that comes with your viewsonic before buying.

    there is one rounded cable. but the port behind is a wider looking serial thingy. anyway that given cable is only 15cm long, not long enough.
