DVI is digtal to digital, while vga is analog to digital. Both work pretty
well, although I prefer dvi. I haven't looked for a while, but using a DVI
cable would disable certain settings in your LCD monitor because those
adjusts weren't necessary.

Still, it's hard to tell the difference with a good cable.
