You should use it on its native resolution, whichever it is,  
otherwise the picture will look "blurry".

You should connect it to DVI with ADC to DVI adapter. That way you  
are sending it digital signal which is not prone to noise and  
distortion lika analog VGA signal is. Besides, VGA signal gets  
converted to analog in graphic card and then converted back to  
digital in monitor so it makes sense to skip these two unnecessary
