VGA vs HDMI and DVI - is there a difference in video quality?

frankbustos asked
Last Modified: 2016-04-05
Hi experts, I have some monitors about 3 years old hooked up with VGA cables at a dental office. They complain that the X-ray quality is not as sharp as they would like it to be. If I change cables from VGA to DVI or HDMI will that makes a difference? I'm just wondering is changing those cables and stay away from VGA will that improve video. I can also change the video card from onboard to pcixpress or even change the monitor. What I'm trying to do is get sharp quality X-rays.
