Default DVI-D or S Dub cable

Might seem silly to most but I've always only ever used S Dub. Now I can use DVI cable. Would this be advisable. Not gona buy one if not .
Any advice would be welcome.

I looked into thus about 7 years ago and went with DVI. The image is sharper and clearer. DVI has been the standard on decent graphics cards for about 5 or 6 years now so that tells me that manufacturers think the old VGA connections aren't as good. Tried a VGA connection about a year or so ago to see the difference and it was quite a bug one! If you have a monitor with a DVI input and a gfx card with DVI output, it's definitely worth the 6 for a cable.

Most Monitors come with cables, I'm sure someone on here may have one they don't use and would give it you if you cover the postage etc.

D-Sub (VGA) = analog, DVI = Digital. Always go digital if you can.
