If your monitor supports a digital signal input via DVI, use it. DVI on a digital display will give you better image quality.
DVI is designed to be able to handle both analogue and digital signals for interoperability. So, using a VGA to DVI converter to connect a VGA cable from the display to the DVI port of the graphics card is the same as connecting a VGA cable to a VGA port. The signal will still be analogue.
What display do you have? Only high resolution displays take advantage of DVI (Dual Link).

Only digital LCD TFT displays can take full advantage of DVI by allowing a digital signal input.
