VGA...DVI...which monitor for future HD editing?

Im upgrading my system and looking at buying two new LCD monitors. Keeping an eye on editing HD in the future, what monitors should I be looking at? Will a standard VGA LCD work? Do I need DVI? Or is there another type of monitor altogether for viewing HD while editing?

Thanks

Just about all the new monitors use DVI although converters are pretty cheap. Instead of the interface I think you should probably be more concerned with the resolution and aspect ratio if you want to be HD compatible. Ideally you want 1920x1080 pixels in the 16:9 aspect ratio. But 1920x1200 seems to be more common for a computer monitor.

Spend a little time browsing through our monitors forum for some ideas: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/forumdisplay.php?f=112

No problem. I've moved your thread to the monitors forum. But please don't cross-post the same thing to more than one forum, it's against DVinfo policy because it fragments the discussion and makes things hard to follow.
