1.) you can change the place of the gnome panels (go to the preferences of the
panel and deactivate expat, then you can move the panel around)
2.) when there is a visible quality difference between D-Sub and DVI you should
consider a another gfx card. Some Radeon >= r300 (better r500) card
should be possible to find on ebay.es for like 10 to 20 EUR.
(at least on ebay.de there is such stuff in masses) Well, a new HD4350 is also
pretty cheap and will just work.
