DVI-D vs VGA cable: differences?

Hi all,

I have a CRT monitor and now I want to buy a new monitor: Dell U2412M (16:10 res.1920x1200), this monitor has a VGA and a DVI-D output.

My pc has an integrated graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 6150SE) with only the VGA output (with the maximum resolution of 1920x1440).

I don't play games, watch HD video on my computer, I just use it for internet and for photo editing (Photoshop CS5).

My question is: is there a difference between VGA and DVI cable? I.e. in the colours, brightness, etc. (I would calibrate the monitor with the new spyder4 pro). As said I'm interested specifically in responses relating to photo editing. Or should I buy a new computer with the DVI output?

Thanks
