Anyway, would it be better than the current VGA connection?
Yes, use the DVI connection.
Thanks Kelly,

I just connected the DVI cable and the resolution is noticeably better.
My next monitor will be a higher resolution with HDMI, but this works for now.

Thanks again,
Paul

FWIW, DVI is a much better connection than HDMI because I believe it will physically do a higher resolution than HDMI, and you don't have to worry if you have the newest version of the standard. I personally don't like HDMI on computer monitors. I'd prefer DVI or Display Port.

Not all monitors/graphics solutions have a display port. I was just saying I prefer DVI or display port.
