I'm thinking of getting a new monitor, my current one is dieing but the one I"m thinking of getting has a hdmi port unlike my current one,
so what I was wondering, for a pc, is it better to use the DVI cable or the HDMI cable, is one better then the other or, does it even matter?
For resolutions up to 1920x1080 (full HD) the signal quality is essentially the same. Going over sometimes varies, with DVI in dual link producing a cleaner (lower compression) image, but newer GPUs and super-high-resolution monitors do very well with HDMI, good enough that many can't tell the difference.
HDMI 1.4 supports 3D and resolutions up to 4096x2160p at 24Hz.
I don't notice a difference of picture quality between HDMI and DVI. I most often use HDMI to make it easier to manage cables. Seeing it does carry sound

DVI and HDMI are both digital signals so in theory there shouldn't be a difference in picture quality. In some cases, it may be better to go with DVI if audio isn't a concern as DVI cables are cheaper.
