Your question 

I mean which should be preferred way of including graphics?

has no simple answer.

If you have a vector graphic that is usually better than a bitmap (say .jpg or .png).

LaTeX takes .eps as it preferred format, whereas PDFLaTeX prefers .pdf (it handles .png,.pdf,.jpg,.mps,.jpeg,.jbig2,.jb2,.PNG,.PDF,.JPG,.JPEG,.JBIG2 and .JB2, natively).

The epstopdf and epspdfconversion packages allow to convert eps to pdf on the fly. So you can use eps with PDFLaTeX.
