well my only option is component

my xbox doesnt have vga or hdmi but my tv does let component go up to 1080p and it looks absolutely amazing. i just played SKATE on 1080p and i was fu*king blown away
yeah, the 360 supports VGA by default.. it's about whether or not your TV can. But it plugs into the back of the box, the same way the component cords do.. except the other end is the VGA input rather than the 5 component cords.

i'm in the market for a new tv now for my systems. i'm runnin all systems on a 23" Dell monitor/TV.

i went to circuit city today and been doin research online for a minute. for all intents and purposes, 720p and 1080i televisions are visually identical. the subtle differences aren't noticeable by the nekkid eye. right now, 1080p is the new "must-have." all the companies are telling you that you're cheating yourself if you're doing HD in anything but 1080p, blah blah.

Most of our games are designed to max out at 720p anyway.

Basically, the most important info to know is that the difference between 1080p and 720p really only becomes noticeable when you're dealing with 50" and up televisions. If you've got a huge flat screen that's 65", then 1080p will be making the most of your set. But when you dealing with 42" TV's, and in your case, 37" -- you're straight with 720p sets. Most cables will do the upscaling for you if it makes you feel better. but like i said, unless you're a real fanatic and know EXACTLY what it is you're doing with the TV, you're just wasting money on a marketing dollars.

Besides, I think you should just go to the stores, create a list and find TV's that look best to you, check your wallet to see what's do-able, and spend $300 less. While some TV's just outright look better, you can duplicate most pictures if you do your visual settings properly.

one of the main differences you'll discover first is in sound. you end up going from an analog output to digital when you switch to HDMI, so the sound is a bit more crisp. however, if your tv isn't hooked up to a surround sound system, it won't really make too much of a difference anyway. don't get it twisted, the picture will be more crisp, but the difference might not be significant enough for you.

i might be talkin out my a.ss though, because when i hooked up my vga cable, i definitely noticed the difference, and wouldn't go back at all. VGA is supposed to be the HDMI for people whose TV's don't support HDMI.
