Some of the video cables most commonly used in computers include Video Graphics Array, Digital Visual Interface and High Definition Multimedia Interface cables. Cables used for audio with computers mainly consist of 2.1- to 3.5-millimeter headphone jacks and Digital Optical Audio connectors.
Universal Serial Bus connections are used in a variety of peripheral computer devices such as mice, headsets, keyboards and flash drives. FireWire cables are similar to USB cables in that they are used for high speed data transfer between a computer and a peripheral device, but they are not as commonly used as USB connections. Ethernet cables are primarily used to establish local area connections by connecting routers to modems and computers.
