Windows 7: What is the best connection type for what I am using?

What is the best connection type for what I am using?

I am running a computer with Windows 7 and a Geforce 9800 GTX+ Video card that has a DVI out on the Video card. The screen that I am using is a 32" Panasonic VIERA X1 Series TC-L32X1. I want the best quality and Color that I can get out of my setup. Should I run DVI to VGA converter to my TV and connect it to the VGA(PC) connector in the back of screen and run the TV in PC Mode or Should I run my DVI to HMDI converter to the HDMI slot in the back of the TV? Is the HDMI better? Or should be I running the TV with VGA in PC mode for best output? Or does it not matter in this case? I've been running it normally HDMI to the TV and running the TV in GAME mode, but today I hooked it up the VGA way into PC mode, I'm not sure if there is a difference or not or if the image is less sharp or crisp. I have been having a problem when playing a game that I play online, and when I am on the " Reds " are really vibrant. I've tried turning them down in the NVIDIA controller but it doesn't affect it too much in my game play. Just throwing some different options and ideas around. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'm just looking for the best optimal output I can get.

That's a lot of choices mate and I lost you. If you don't notice any difference any way is fine. Usually HDMI will lock you out of videos adjustment though since it's all digital.
