I have external monitor with VGA and HDMI ports, i plan to connect my macbook pro (mid 2014) to connect it.
What's the best way of doing this: Direct HDMI to HDMI connection, or MiniDP to HDMI/VGA adapter?

The best way is to use the built-in HDMI port, but if for some reason you need to use the MiniDP, it's a better idea to use a MiniDP to HDMI cable instead of a MiniDP to VGA cable since VGA is analog, which means it's lower quality video and it has no audio.
