Question DVI-D To HDMI (New LCD Monitor Question)

I'm picking up a Hanns-G HG216DPB 22" LCD monitor tomorrow. It appears it only has VGA and HDMI hook-ups on the back. So, my question is this; Can I use ONLY a DVI-D To HMDI Cable from the video card to the monitor? Or will I be forced to use the VGA? I don't have a video card, yet, but will be picking up an 8800GT or a 9600GT soon. Thanks.

Either a DVI-HDMI cable or an adapter.

Or you can do what my friend did and spend $100 on a Monster DVD-D to HDMI at Worst Buy.

Any advantage to using one of these if one's monitor has both HDMI and DVI inputs?

I'm using a DVI MALE to HDMI Female adapter with a 6' HDMI cable for my HP w2408h (24'' HDMI monitor).

Loss-less quality. About $15 total from newegg.
