Just found out Monitor does not support HDMI

Go to solution Solved by Trustadz,

Given the brand of the monitor i'm inclined to say : no, not much difference.

 

For the long answer:

 

So its 9pm here in Sydney. Just finished attaching all cables and management to my very first build. Go to plug in my brand new monitor ( benq gl2460 ?). Find out it doesn't support HDMI,? haha. Here I am stuck until tommorow morning to either go out and buy the choice of either dvi-d or d-sub cable, or potentially return this monitor (already opened - little chance). So, question to you tech experts - is there a noticeable difference? 

 

Also let me know your input on this issue

 

Cheers, Sam

DVI and HDMI would produce the exact same image. By D-Sub, I assume you mean VGA (D-Sub is a collection of several connectors in the same style). VGA can have varying quality and interference as it's an analogue signal. 

 

Bear in mind that DVI will not carry audio, though if you have headphones or speakers, this doesn't matter anyway.

Yep, VGA, my bad. Also, I prefer Audio through HDMI but for the time Being VGA :/

Mine came with just VGA, not even the DVI-D that is on the Monitor itself. Go figure.
