  1. As long as both your monitor and motherboard or GPU supports HDMI, you can. You may have to buy a HDMI cable because monitors don't usually come with it.

    HDMI = DVI without audio
    HDMI > VGA

    is it better than dvi?
  3. I just said they're equal. The only difference is that HDMI also carry an audio channel. Quality-wise, they're about the same. HDMI is a tad better. But most monitors (not TVs) don't carry speakers, so the audio channel isn't the most useful thing to me.
