    Default Dvi

    Is there any difference in colour quality when using DVI connectors getween a GF3 Ti 200 and using a parhelia. Will I get a nicer picture using a parhelia?

    I don't think so.

    If it is a DVI CRT, the only benefit of the Parhelia would be gigacolor.....other than that...

    Would Gigacolour even be an advantage? I mean, isn't 8bits per channel the best that LCDs do at the moment?

    Parhelia does have VCQ2, so yes, Parhelia will have better looking colors.

    DVI CRTs were all just DVI-A CRTs, meaning they are analog and just use DVI-I instead of D-SUB plugs.

    I have no clue about all those different DVI types.
    What kind of DVI connection did this monitor use?

    I found it - it's no longer sold, though.

    It actually uses DVI-D.

    The different DVI flavours are:

    DVI-D: Digital. This is the signaling flat panels use.
    DVI-A: Analog. Just like D-SUB with a different plug. There are adaptors from DVI-A to D-SUB.
    DVI-I: Integrated. The connectors for DVI-D and DVI-A are a bit different, physically (apart from delivering very different signals) - this is one connection standard that can transport both Analog and Digital signals, and fits everywhere. DVI-I is used more to describe the plug and connection, while DVI-D and -A are used to discern between Digital and Analog signaling. Most devices use DVI-I connectors.
