whoops. i forgot it has component connections aswell. i feel dumb now.

anyway, obviously hdmi would be better resolution-wise. but is there a way to display my pc on that? i think ive seen a dvi to hdmi connector, but would that drop my resolution?

Hmmm, HDMI appear to be a newer standard in digital viewing. It may replace the DVI output. Not too familiar with HDMI. The convertor is definitely available. I think the picture quality would be fine.

would i be better off using a hdmi connection(converted from dvi) or 'component' inputs(ugh, i hate that name, so confusing)?

I'm not sure. Here's an article on Anandtech that talks a little about it:

wow. i read that article. and see that hdmi has alot of things going for it. even microsoft is backing it, apparently.

does that mean pc's will start having hdmi outputs? and also, isnt dvi the same as 15pin dsub/vga
