What cables am I going to need to plug in an LG monitor to my Macbook Pro?

I have the newer MacBook Pro 13in. and I Ordered a 22 in LG monitor for it, I'm not sure which cables I need to plug it in and have the best results.

this is the monitor i ordered: http://www.amazon.com/LG-W2253TQ-PF-22-Inch-Widesc...

I know that I need a Mini DisplayPort adapter, but I don't know which one VGA or DVI, and do I need any other cables?

    That Monitor only has a DVI connection so this is the cable you need:

    I would look for a Monitor with a HDMI port and get this:

    According to LG's specifications, that monitor you linked to has a DVI port: http://www.lg.com/au/it-products/monitors/LG-wide-...

    To use that monitor with your Macbook Pro, you want to get the miniDisplayPort-to-DVI adapter and a standard DVI monitor cable.

    Hope this helps.

    I would guess it to be DVI. VGA is more or less phased out these days.
