The only difference between the dvi and hdmi is the physical connector style and HDMI can carry audio. I have always just used dvi as I have DVI cables and I do not have HDMI cables.

Just use dvi because your screen probably came with a dvi cable unless you have hdmi cable lying around doesnt mater realy

you can use either of them they are both digital signals the difference being hdmi has sound and dvi does not. I use vga with my 560ti and I see no quality difference although I have a 50USD dollar cable I bought years ago lol
