Personally I only have HDMI inputs on my monitor.
Don't know about cheaper. Got my USBC->HDMI alt-mode cable for about the equivalent of $20. That's not to bad, but may be Pine64 should carry this type of cable in their store so that n00bs like me don't have to make the mistake of first ordering a cable without alt-mode Smile. Also, alt-mode cables are not very common it seems, lots of stores put way higher prices on them compared to regular USBC->HDMI cables.

Yeah, that fits what I read earlier in this thread.  What you call a "alt-mode cable" is a "alt-mode-displayport to HDMI" converter.  That requires circuitry (i.e integrated circuit chips) to convert the displayport signal to HDMI.
A "regular USBC->HDMI" cable is just a cable adapter that just puts all the wires in the right places, and shouldn't require any complex circuitry.  It connects "alt-mode HDMI" (which the PBP doesn't do) to regular HDMI.

Ok, that explains why the HDMI connector is so bulky.
