Default Connecting Monitor to Video Card

Is it better to connect using the analog RGB or the DVI inputs on the monitor. My monitor came with a RGB cable but no DVI.

if I use RGB then I will have to use one of the convertors that the video card came with. Or should I buy a DVI cable

Just use the 15 PIn Male VGA connector on the moniter, Because even if you can change the cable on the moniter you would probably have to open it up and modify it, Then theres the possibility to damage your moniter.
