    My TV's resolution is 1366x768, and it has an HDMI and a VGA input free. My computer only has a DVI free.
    So my question: At 1366x768, would a DVI to HDMI cable, or a DVI to VGA adaptor to VGA cable look better overall? I've tried both, I don't see any noticable difference, but my eyes aren't that great. I'm mainly asking for when I invite others over, they have really good eyesight.
    Also note, I would not use HDMI for audio, it'd be strictly video. I use a chunked together 7.1 Surround with 2 subwoofers for audio.

    VGA is analog period. It is inferior to digital signal.

    Use DVI to HDMI converter.

    Thanks, I was aware of the analog/digital difference, but I thought that only mattered on higher resolutions like 1080p. I'll use the DVI to HDMI though.

    FYI, DVI and HDMI are virtually the same.

    Yep. DisplayPort, DFP (now legacy), DVI, and HDMI all carry digital signal. It is the matter of remapping the pin.
