Default HDTV cable question

Hey, im getting a 23inch hdtv samsung to use as a monitor. It's hdtv.....It only has a VGA port and no dvi which pisses me off. Anyways, If i got this cable http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tv...ml?id=fyyGPCPd
dvi to hdmi would the quality be better than just using dvi to vga. ?

DVI is backwards compatible with HDMI, and they both are digital so yes I think the quality would be better then using dvi to vga because thats converting a digital feed to an analog feed. I would go with the dvi to hdmi.
