Most LCD TVs do not have a DVI connector on them and usually just VGA and HDMI would be superior to VGA.  It is not even worth using the VGA because the text will not be clear.  You can either use a DVI to HDMI cable if you have a DVI connector on your computer or just use an HDMI to HDMI cable as this would also pass the sound to the TV and the DVI or VGA will not.  If you have a laptop, it is much better to hear the sound on the TV speakers versus the laptop speakers.
