  1. at normal resolutions using 60Hz refresh rate it doesn't really matter, since both use similar signaling. But for 1080p at 120Hz dual-link DVI is needed, hdmi doesn't have enough bandwidth to transmit it.
    Hdmi can carry sound as well, if it is usefull in your setup...
  2. They are basically the same as long as the quality of the connection components are the same. The only difference is that HDMI carries audio signals as well. I believe HDMI 1.4a supports 120Hz, however, both video card and monitor must support HDMI 1.4a.
