No no, back in the ol days (pre '90s days) there was the monicrome days, the cga days, the ega days, then finally the vga days. If you have a choice, the svga monitor is better than the ega one. More colors and more resolutions.
Although I don't remember what EGA's standards were, SVSA will beat it so I would recommend that setup if you have a 'really old' system.
