HDMI is DVI with audio if you want to say it simply. The specs are similar that's why you can have a DVI > HDMI cable without any converters or things like that. They just match the PINs but leave off the Audio ones for DVI. So yes, there is no difference in quality at all as they are exactly the same
+1 both have their advantages and disadvantages.
HDMI is better because it also carries the audio so if you want to ever hook your PC up to a TV and use its built in speakers then you don't need to try and hook up a separate audio connection.
DVI can depending on type also carry an analogue signal...and the connector has screws so is more secure.

DVI also carries Analog so you can use a DVI to VGA adapter on a DVI port, HDMI is only digital
Not entirly true....only DVI-I (or the uncommon DVI-A) carry analogue. DVI-D doesn't carry an analogue signal.
