Does using a HDMI to DVI-D cable differs from using a HDMI cable to DVI-D?

I have a monitor (e2351F) which doesnt have HDMI input, so I need a way to connect the video output of the video card which has either HDMI/DP but my monitor only has DVI and VGA, so would there be any difference if I chose a HDMI TO DVI-D adapter with a HDMI cable, or I should the get the HDMI to DVI cable? the video card has 1 HDMI and 3DP

Cables: 10000 or more 14800

They're the same, but be aware, to use an HDMI cable with an adapter, you need an HDMI female to DVI male adapter. Some of those adapters are HDMI male to DVI female, which you would need to use with a DVI cable. If you get an HDMI-DVI cable, it will work in either direction. I would get the HDMI-DVI cable for simplicity.

No difference, they carry the same signal.
