Question HDMI>DVI-D?

I was thinking of buying a BenQ monitor, but then realised it had no HDMI connectivity, only DVI-D.
Is there any noticible difference between the 2 cables? The resolution is 1920x1080.

Thanks in advance.

HDMI is basically just a DVI signal coupled with an audio stream. Visually, they are identical.

^ What he said. No difference other than audio. Both are digital signals.
