VGA - PC's

In 1987, IBM introduced the Video Graphics Array (VGA) display system. This has become the accepted minimum standard for PC clones. Many VGA monitors are still in use today. The maximum resolution depends on the number of colors displayed. You can choose between 16 colors at 640 x 480 pixels, or 256 colors at 320 x 200 pixels. All IBM-compatible computers support the VGA standard.
