    I have just purchased two new monitors that have two hdmi and a vga input but my graphics card has dvi,hdmi and display port so I have one monitor running Strait hdmi and the other one running dvi converted to hdmi but that one I'd very blurb and slightly stretched. So I was wondering if it would be better to run displayport and convert it to hdmi or get a new graphics card.

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    What is the exact make and model of the two monitors?
    What resolution(s) are you trying to run at?

    Shouldn't matter unless you are using large (ie: over 1920x1080) resolution. Sounds like you are not using the monitors native resolution

    Hi there! I'm not really a computer expert or anything, but I do what you are doing!

    I use an HDMI wire from the TV that connects to a DVI/HDMI converter that goes into the DVI port on the back of my computer. I don't notice any loss in quality. If you are noticing a loss in quality, maybe it is the converter?

    Personally I always try to find a solution that doesn't involve " a new graphics card " but that's just me!
