So i just picked up a new pc as mine had died a horrible death, and i am now met by only monitor ports for either HDMI or hi res. Neither of which suit the 15'' dell i was using with a standard monitor cable.
I'm looking to get something to sit well with the new pc. Approx £200 budget
HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort are for the most part intercompatible. You can buy cables for ~£5-10 that convert one connection to another (DisplayPort is rapidly becoming the standard though as it's technically the most superior).
