Best Video Cable To Use For GTX 960 4 GB OC

I have a Gigabyte GTX 960 WF +2 OC video card, but I am not sure what kind of video cable to use to just hook it up to a rather humble TV monitor.

I will be getting a dedicated monitor later, but for now I will be using a Hitachi 19" LCD TV monitor that has PC source options with D-sub, RCA, and HDMI input connectors.

I know the RCA is pretty much pointless. I am thinking of using the HDMI because it seems most obvious to use, but the video card has a total of 4 outputs. They are a dual link DVI-I, dual link DVI-D, Display Port, and an HDMI port.

Would I be best off using an adapter with DVI outputs or should I just use a HDMI cable connection with this temporary TV setup?

Thank you ahead of time for any help or replies with this issue.

Use the hdmi because it will carry sound(if the tv supports that) and you are not playing at 144hz so it won't make a difference in terms of an FPS over 60 or so.
