Switching from analogue to digital is simply a matter of switching cables at the back of your machine - I think you need an LCD monitor and it should come with a seperate cable for this purpose.

Well, digital has many advantages - a sharper image, full use of a low response time for games and an image that fits exactly in the screen all of the time.

If you have the cable (it's more rectangular than the usual analogue one) then I can't think of a single reason to not switch.
