Got a new monitor, didn't come with DVI cables. I am just using a converter right now for the analog cables instead.

So, is it worth getting unlazy and going out to get a pair of cables? There a noticeable difference?

But they aren't MONSTER CABLES!

But fair enough, I'll purchase a pair tonight. Hopefully Circuit City isn't closed yet.

I'd buy cables from where iNVAR posted or from eBay.... Way cheaper than any retail store.

My card does HDMI through an adapter I'm going for that but I've been to lazy to order the 15' cable required.

I've been watching my pirated HD content through VGA with my laptop. It works good enough. My TV has VGA and not DVI for whatever reason.

You can spend $60 at a store, or you can spend $10 on Monoprice. Not a hard choice, IMO.

See, now there's the catch 20. It's if I'm willing to pay the unlazy tax, basically. But I think I shall purchase from your store link this time, Invar.

I run dual monitors at work and one is DVI and the other is Analog. There is a clear difference but they both look good.
