    I am going to purchase a BenQ V2420H monitor in the morning.

    I am able to get it for 199€ so it is a good deal.

    Now do I want to connect it to my Imac...

    Model Name: iMac
    Model Identifier: iMac7,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 3 GB

    Via the mini DVI to DVI or should I go with the mini DVI to VGA.

    Or the Display port to DVI.

    I am confused on which one to use. Any help would be great.

    Your version of the iMac does not have Display Port (according to Mactracker). You would need the Mini-DVI to something adapter. I would recommend DVI over VGA.

    I took your advice and it works perfectly.
