Any will be fine; whatever cable is cheapest.

For 60Hz refresh rate monitors any one of them will do, the difference will be non-existent, but for higher than 60Hz, you should be using Dual-link DVI-D.

Really? I thought that the Displayport was best out of the three.

For what your doing, all will be the same.
DisplayPort is technically the most capable of the three, it has the highest bandwidth so can support higher resolutions like 4K or a possible 1440p @120hz. But in terms of image quality there will be no difference, and in the context of what you need, any of the connectors will do the same job just as well.

So basically Displayport supports higher resolutions. Would anyone know where to find a decent brand name Displayport in Australia?

Your problem is going to be finding a 1080p monitor that supports Displayport, not a cable. Unless your buying a 120hz, you wont find a Displayport connection on a 1080p screen.

Either HDMI or DVI, as mentioned throughout the thread, there's no difference between them for what your doing.

There's Dell U2312HM 1080p 60Hz IPS monitor which has display port.

Yeah, bit of a generalization that statement. Since then I have actually gotten my hands on an ASUS PA238Q, a 1080p IPS with a Displayport connection (which is great, because I can use Eyefinity without having to buy a $50 adapter, Australian prices are ridiculous).

True that. It has the highest bandwidth among all the cables and also carries audio signals I am not sure if DisplayPort supports encoded DTS/Dolby bitstreaming though.

HDMI best for TV but with a 1.4 HDMI wire can support some 3D
DisplayPort best for PC (even if not often seen) Good for 3D
DL-DVI (DL for dual) more pin in the wire. Good for 3D too

The new technologie coming out from Nvidia and supported by Asus is the G-Sync. And when you add that module to the only monitor that can support it for now (VG248QE) it will take out the HDMI and DL-DVI port out into oblivion and leave you with 1 option the DisplayPort. http://www.blurbusters.com/gsync/upgrade-walkthrough/

So my guess would be that if Nvidia and Asus decided to give one option only to their technology, it most be the best choice. I guess.

Not always, If 4k monitors do as well as they are expected to, DisplayPort would be the better option because it doesn't have to use compression in order to transmit a 4k signal at 60Fps, but, DisplayPort is mainly only used on Computers and Laptops right now. HDMI would be the next best option, but I would recommend not using DVI-D. It is analog and not as supported as it used to be.

what are you talking about analog dvi-d is full digital where as dvi-i supports analog for legacy support

your monitor or display will include the cable you need most of the time hdmi is usually fine for consoles and such where 30fps is the most they can handle and hdmi 2.0 will support higher refresh rates as well as display port and dvi-d supporting high refresh rates and resolutions for higher end monitors

DVI every time. With 2 different graphic cards and two different monitors - LED and LCD, both 1080, I have never obtained even acceptable results with HDMI. Text is blurred, and ClearType has no effect because it starts off with best choice blurred. I had to expand the picture to full screen using the monitor's on-board menu, or such as Catalyst Control Centre (AMD), because it initially sits in the middle of the screen with a huge border around it, auto-adjust placed picture off-centre, and when I set it up as best possible for Windows and text, video is awful, and requires re-setting-up, and then Windows and text is awful. In fact, at time of writing I am returning a monitor because it only has HDMI, and I spent days and days setting it up without success, including using DVI to HDMI and VGA adapters. It seems to me that HDMI is for televisions only.
Radeon HD5670, Radeon R9 280X, ViewSonic and LG monitors - it's the LG that's going back. My experience was similar with Display Port on the ViewSonic, which is crystal clear and crisp using DVI.
