    Default VGA vs XGA monitor - Which is best?

    What's the difference between these two types of monitors?

    Are they interchangable?

    Will a VGA monitor be sufficient if my Adobe Premeire Elements 2.0 calls for an XGA monitor?

    I've already purchased both the monitor and the software.

    XGA is an older format of graphics displays. Here is a little information on it.

    Sorry Darthtanion, but in this case the "XGA" is the Mnemonic acronym used in reference to the monitor's capability of displaying a certain screen resolution size (in this case 1024x768).

    Here are some more Mnemonic acronym examples;

    standard 4:3 aspect screens-
    VGA = 640480
    SVGA = 800600
    XGA = 1024768
    SXGA = 12801024
    UXGA = 16001200

    wide 16:10 aspect screens-
    WSXGA = 16001024
    WUXGA = 19201200
    WQXGA = 25601600

    there are many more but these are the most common.
