    Is there a BIG difference between an Analog Monitor and a Digital Monitor besides the plug for it? I realize that the digital picture is going to be better than the analog, but is it THAT much better? If i move from a digital monitor (which ive been using for the past couple years now) and to a bigger analog monitor will i notice a difference? a BIG enough difference to not enjoy the new bigger size of the new one? thanks in advance!

    The picture quality difference will vary depending on how good the monitor is. I always recommend going digital if you can, the picture quality advantage is usually noticeable.

    If you have been using digital monitor, for the past 2 years, and go back to analog, you will be sorry.

    If you are looking to get a bigger monitor, get a bigger digital monitor, and use the one you have now, on a backup computer.

    Or just buy a big monitor and sell your old one to recoup the cost... :)
    I tried a dual monitor setup for a while, didn't really get on with it. At times it could prove very useful, but most of the time I didn't have reason for the second monitor to be on, and it wreaks all sorts of havoc with a large number of PC games.

    No problem. Go with something like a Samsung 226BW.

    Outstanding choice for a 22" monitor.

    was gonna suggest the 226Bw esp the pebble version. (maybe not for dual setup, but the pebble for a signle setup)
