I have toshiba laptop with NVIDIA GO FX 5200 graphics card and VGA out. I recently got Samsung 1080P HLR6168. What are my options for connecting laptop to TV? What will give better screen on TV VGA to VGA OR VGA to DVI?
VGA to VGA will do better than having to purchase a VGA to DVI trasncoder to covert the analog VGA signal to a digital DVI signal. A Nvidia card with DVI and VGA out would even be cheaper than a transcoder.

Miketech always has to let someone down and tell it like it is. I'm sure the original poster understands that and plans on doing regular functions with the laptop. Or at least I hope the poster understands.
