In my summer bedroom theatre project I am going to be using a mini projector mounted to my ceiling to watch movies.

I already have bought a 50ft vga cable, that when connected to my GPU Is run thru a VGA -> DVI adapter.

Should I get a more expensive hdmi cable instead? is it really that worth it? Audio is not a problem I'm letting my PC handle it.
 
Solution
Is the mini projector native 1080p, as opposed to just accepting a full HD signal?
If it isn't I would say that VGA will be fine.
Long HDMI cables and splitters can cause handshake issues that can drive you crazy.
