First of all if your happy with the way your pic looks then keep it that way , if your tv supports 1080p then get the vga cable im not sure if sound goes into the vga as well but i do know that you can receive 1080p thru it. hope this helps a liitle bit.

You are probably referring to the VGA plugin, there is no HDMI plugin. For standard DVDs you are better with the VGA since it will upscale them (and does a good job at it too).

For HD DVD discs it is almost the same, unless you have a 1080p HDTV, in which case VGA is better. Make sure you set your resolution properly in your 360 system settings when you add an adapter - they default to a lower resolution.

I switched from the component cable to the VGA. By doing so I get a 1080p picture and it also upconverts my DVDs (it only does this through the VGA.)

A note on upconverting. A friend of mine recently bought an upconverting Samsung DVD player (he has a PS3 which he says does not upconvert, so he bought both) and the quality is comperable to my 360 with a VGA connection.
