I was just studying up with the NewEgg tutorial and he uses a HDMI cable instead of VGA or DVI? What's the difference and does a new monitor come with HDMI, VGA, or DVI? Also does the mini speaker he uses to hear the beeps come with the Motherboard?

Some monitors come with HDMI and DVI, some with VGA and DVI a.s.o.
You'll have to buy a case speaker. It's good for troubleshooting when the PC doesn't POST.

HDMI works exactly the same way DVI does, but it can't carry as large a resolution picture, and it can carry sound.

DVI carries JUST the picture, but it can be of better quality if needed, and some types can carry a hundred twenty frames a second instead of just sixty.

VGA also carries just a picture, but isn't nearly as good quality.

It depends on the monitor - mine has two HDMI, one dual-link DVI, and one VGA.
