If your monitor has a dvi interface, plug it with the dvi on the motherboard, it's of better quality than vga(since it's analog interface), dvi is a digital(digital visual interface).

Yep as ^djangoringo said above if your monitor has a DVI input use that as the Digital connection will give the best quality you can get out of the two.
