yes the dvi cable works just thought a hdmi cable would be better picture quality? maybe it doesn't matter on a computer. i could get another hdmi cable and try that. but if there is no need for it i wont even get one. i use headphones that's why i didn't get a monitor with speakers.
It won't have better quality just because you're using a HDMI cable as compared to a DVI. I'll use a HDMI cable for my computer monitor in 2 scenarios, if the monitor has built in speakers, or if my DVI cable/ports doesn't work. My point is, if the DVI work, just use the DVI.
