Default Question on the different monitor connection formats

I was looking at some spare hardware at my wife's job and noticed some of their flat LCDs had some weird cable on them. It wasn't the standard DVI cables. The connection on it was thinner than the standard DVI cable. What is this format called?

I was thinking about buying one of their monitors as a spare monitor for my office but this connection kinda made me think twice on the purchase.

You got VGA, DVI and what else?
