    I have used both a display port to HDMI adapter and a DVI to HDMI adapter on different computers.

    The display port to HDMI was better than DVI to HDMI. The DVI to HDMI produced a little bit more blurry text.

    Alright, my monitor supports VGA and HDMI so I think I'd use the DVI to VGA for the computer and just the HDMI on the console. Just because I'm trying to use a capture card that supports only HDMI for the console. DVI to VGAs are fairly clear, yes?

    I think DVI to VGA would be better then DVI to HDMI. I only did the DVI to HDMI because I had a ton of HDMI cables around my house, needed to connect a VGA/DVI monitor that day, and the video card only has DVI, HDMI, and Display Port outputs. The local store only had DVI to HDMI adapter that was reasonably priced, so I used that temporarily until I could mail order a DVI to DVI regular monitor cable. The results going from DVI to DVI were much better.

    How's this one Amazon.com: Ugreen DVI 24+5 DVI-I Dual Link to VGA Male to Male Digital Video Cable Gold Plated Support 1080P for Gaming, DVD, Laptop, HDTV and Projector, 5ft/1.5m: Electronics from what I can see DVI goes in the system, or whatever you use then the VGA goes to the display. Just double checking

    Yes, that would connect a VGA monitor to a DVI video card.

    Note that a DVI to VGA adapter has no active components. It relies on the DVI port including an analog signal line.

    I have never seen a DVI port that is purely digital (DVI-D), but it's possible in principle.

    I probably shouldn't be raising an issue this unlikely, but...

    Ignorance is only the lack of knowledge, we are all on a permanent learning curve, especially me! No need to be apologetic

    I would ask one question myself on this:

    Do both monitors have to be the same model and drivers
