Default graphics card dilema

i have just been lucky enough to buy a del tft monitor,and was wondering if it is worth buying a graphics card with a dvi connection for the monitor.
but cant help wondering what will the benifits be from a dvi connection and will i see any differences. or is it just a waste of money ?

also the card i have now is a radeon 7200 mb and i have been looking at a 128 mb but i dont realy do any gaming so should i go for 128 or stick with 64mb
