At 1080, there is no difference. The only difference is the method in which it gets transmitted there. VGA as a red, green, blue analogue signal while HDMI and DVI are digital visual signals.

HDMI and DVI-D are digital formats. They show exactly what the picture should be. VGA is analog and is sensitive to quality of cable and distance and other signal degradation effects. At best VGA will show what the picture should be but it's possible it won't.
