As of right now I own this TV: http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-27AF44-27-Flat-MTS/dp/B0001CVBVE I am using component cables to hook up my PS3. I think my TV only goes up to 480i. However, everything does look good on it including standard cable and VHS. It's my understanding that standard cable looks horrible on HDTV and I will have to upgrade my service if I don't want to see TV programs looking absolutely horrible. I am considering getting an LCD that is capable of producing 1080p. I am wondering if it is truly worth it. $2000 plus is quite a bit of money for me at the moment, and its not like I really know what I'm missing if I don't get an HDTV. However, the idea of having my games look substantially better than they already do is really tempting. So will HDTV truly be worth it in most cases?
