I was thinking about getting a monitor with HDMI but my video card currently does not have hdmi. I was thinking about getting either a DVI to HDMI cable or a HDMI adapter.

My question is by connecting from my computer (DVI) to monitor (HDMI) would there be any degradation or lose of video quality.

DVI and HDMI carry the same video signal, they are just different connectors and HDMI supports sound over its cable, but the video data carried is identical so there should not be any quality difference between the two.

My monitor, which is a Hanns-G 28". is running off a HDMI to DVI cable. To be honest, I can't tell the difference if I even hook it up with a VGA.

If your vid card supports the "HDMI architecture" (most name brands have for years), you can use a simple DVI to HDMI cable or adapter with no loss of quality AND support the HDMI "protection" coding allowing you to play Blu-ray movies on your PC.

My old Radeon 3870 (from 2007) only has DVI ports, but supports "HDMI" with an adapter.
