Default quick flat screen monitor question

I just got a new Dell 1708FP Monitor, and it has a blue cable to connect to the tower, AND a USB Cable. I had an older Dell flat panel, but it didn't have this. Is this USB cable necessary? And what does it do?

It's for the USB ports on the side of the monitor. If you don't use those, then there's no harm in not using the USB cable.
