Need VGA/SVGA Cable 1080

Does anyone know where I can get a VGA/SVGA cable that supports 1920x1080? or 1900x1080.

I need it from

amazon.com
bestbuy (or the .com)
or staples (not the .com)

Those are the only avalible places.

Correct samm0286, neither the VGA or the SVGA standards support 1080p which is 1920 x 1080. If you have s-video out on your video adapator, use it as it may support 720p depending on your hardware/TV. All TV's do not support these resolutions.

@ valtonray -

I see in the product description it supports only up to 1600x1200....


And also, i know VGA can go that high, as the cables at my school have that high resolution, and its a VGA type connector. And I dont need 1080p, 1080i would be fine too.

I think perhaps you may have DVI connectors at school, on the outside they can look just like the VGA ones but the pins are different. Many displays and video cards have ports for both VGA and DVI.

Here is a handy reference on video connectors:

Your cable and all your hardware needs to also support HDCP: High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
