Should I go for DVI-DVI or DVI-HDMI for connecting my new monitor to my computer?

I'd just keep it simple and go with a DVI to DVI cable, but it seems like DVI to HDMI cables are cheaper. Are there any disadvantages to one type over another, or can I focus on price alone?
Computer has 2 HDMI, 2 DVI & 1 VGA outputs (1 HDMI, 1 DVI and 1 VGA from the video card, an ATI Radeon HD 5760). The monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs and shipped with a VGA cable which I am using for now, but I'd eventually like to set up dual screens with my old monitor which has only VGA input. System is Windows 7 if that matters at all, and the new monitor is HDCP-compliant.
