DVI Question

OK, so, Polytropos HQ has been outfitted with some new computer equipment, including a video card in the desktop and a new LCF monitor on the, er, desktop. Both have DVI ins/outs/whatever for digital video, but the monitor shipped only with the good old-fashioned however-many-pin analog video connector.

I could buy a digital cable to take advantage of this new digital-ness. My question is: is there a point? In either picture quality or framerate or anything? It’s been so long since I’ve upgraded I find myself embarrassingly uninformed about such things that the moment.

Your wisdom is welcome.
