dvi is digital, newer, better quality and faster. vga is analog, and old...it works just fine, but not as well (i havent seen the difference but i know that dvi is better) go with the dvi

when I first got my lcd I didnt have a dvi cable so I had it connected via vga. now when I got my dvi cable and switched over to dvi connection, I didnt notice a difference, but as cornholio101 said I have read that its better and what not. got the cable at a good price, couldnt go wrong!!
