    Hello, I am purchasing a new cheap monitor, and I have three choices. One has 1920x1080p but uses a VGA connector, the next one has 1600x1200p and a DVI connector, and the last has 1440x900p and also a DVI connector the three names (respectively) are, www.cnet.com/products/aoc-l22w898/specs/ , next
    https://www.cnet.com/products/viewsonic-vp2130b/specs/ ,last
    https://www.cnet.com/products/viewsonic-vp2130b/specs/ . My laptop I'm using to transmit the picture is a Dell Inspiron 5559 with a graphics card of Intel hd 520. Thanks for the help guys!❤️ ( I am also wondering if the first one would even display at full resolution)

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Your first link leads to a TV with resolution of 1680x1050 and the next 2 links are the same !

    Please check the links and put the correct ones in your next reply.

    First TV also has HDMI. The monitor has VGA aside from DVI.

    A true monitor will give you a much better computer image than a TV as they are designed for that purpose and a TV is not.

    The Intel HD 520 can easily handle any of those resolutions except maybe for gaming, it's not a gaming GPU.

    I missed the HDMI on the TV. Interested to see what the 'other' monitor is now.
