Default New PS3 owner with component vs HDMI ??

I just got a PS3 and want to pick up the right cables to play everything in 720p/1080i( I have a plasma capable of those resolutions,not 1080p though).Will only HDMI play games,dvds,and blu-ray movies in those resolutions,or does component as well?I want to upscale my dvds,so it's important for me to know which cable to get.

I know this question has likely been asked but I can't find it anywhere on here.Any help would be appreciated,thanks.

You need HDMI for DVD upscaling.

Your picture will look just as good with component than HDMI but like stated above you need HDMI to upscale

Yeah, HDMI is needed to upscale. Plus, at least from what I've seen, HDMI looks slightly better (and is cheaper too if you buy the cables in the right place). Monoprice has them for cheap.
