    search for 'avia' to get their calibration disk. hdmi is good for cable management (1 cable vs 5) but otherwise componant will give you the same video quality. but any new tv should have hdmi

    negative ghostrider. HDMI will give you the same quality as Single-Link DVI. However, they are better than Component Cable (component is worse).
