[SLUG] DVI cables

I got an LCD monitor a while back. It uses DVI (as most LCDs do), and since
I didn't see a cable with it (cheapskates, I said to myself), I ordered one.

Yesterday, someone was breaking down the box, and lo and behold, there was a
brand-new, still-wrapped DVI and VGA cables in there. So I didn't need to
buy one after all (well maybe, because of the length at the time), and the
ill will toward Samsung was unfounded.

Anyhow, is there any difference _in picture quality_ between one DVI cable
and another? What makes one better, if so? I realize there can be a
difference in end construction, cable {flexi,dura}bility, etc. I was just
wondering if there's a good reason I should swap a working cable for this
