monoprice.com has good quality cables for the price. Unless you want to show off how much money you have, go ahead and get the Monster Cables.

You do NOT need an HDMI cable.....

Stick with component video and you'll not only save some money, you'll have a BETTER picture....



Or, if you must, go out and buy a nice $100.00 HDMI and feel ripped off after you find out that it doesn't make things any better...

Component cables are limited to that they only show up to 1080i, and with a Upconverting DVD, it only works with the HDMI cables, not with the Component. HDMI cables can be had through Monoprice for under $10 before S&H, or off the shelf for around $40.00 at Wal-mart, etc.
