DL-DVI and HDMI video card port and cable questions

  1. I recently bought a Radeon HD 5670 video card and upon installation realized I need a different cable than the one I am currently running from my monitor "emachines LE1799" to my motherboard. I found out it takes DL-DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI cables. I looked up the DL-DVI and I believe that is for running multiple displays correct? I will not be running more than one monitor, so can I buy the HDMI cable? Will that be the best option to connect the card to my monitor? Or will the DL-DVI be superior?

    Thanks in advance for any help provided.
    You guys are a lifesaver... without you I would be shooting in the dark. :0

    Edit: Hmm I think I will need an HDMI to something else cable because I don't see that port on my monitor.

    Go ahead and ignore this question... I was able to get an answer from another forum. Turns out I need an dvi to vga cable.
