Just get the cheapest dual link dvi cable, or hdmi cable you can find. Premium digital cables can't give you a "better" quality image compared to a cheap cable.

I would personally go with DP just because. :D

Just buy a regular dp cable, doesn't need to be $40 even a $20 cable would be fine.

What cable is your friend using?

 

As long as you're using a digital cable: HDMI, DVI, or DisplayPort (DP), then it literally won't matter.

 

Any differences in "smoothness" are likely due to software differences or one OS being more cluttered then the other.
