Monitor - hdmi possible?

I have this monitor Acer X223W 22 Widescreen LCD Monitor - 1680x1050, 2500:1, 5ms, DVI, VGA, (Refurbished) at TigerDirect.com and am wondering if I can get an hdmi adapter and if it would improve the resolution.

Mine is not refurb - please scroll down and click specs. ( on link)

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks, but I'm not interested in replacing at the moment.
Just wanted to know if I could improve the performance with this one.

Can't believe that your link is $60 cheaper than the one I have.

I removed my post because I thought you were considering buying the one you noted. I misread it.

What are you currently using? I would use the DVI connector if possible. You will see no difference between HDMI and DVI at that resolution.

I'm using the VGA - If I use the DVI on monitor, where do I connect to comp?

If you are using a video card, plug it in there, if you are using the on-board video, plug it in the DVI port on the motherboard.

This is a picture from Newegg of the Asus P8Z77-V motherboard, here is where you plug the DVI connector in.

How embarrassing! The DVI port is right next to the VGA port. - my bad.

Anyway, would it be better than the current VGA connection?
