Using HDTV For Xbox PS2 Display?

If this topic is inappropriate for this newsgroup please nudge me in the
right direction--thanks.

I am reconsidering getting an Xbox and/or PS2 again for gaming and how I
might best display a sharper image then using the common TV. I did this
once by converting the TV video signal to work on my computer monitor.
Although this did produce a sharper image then I think the conversion
process would degrade the image compared to feeding it directly to a HDTV
CRT-type monitor today. With the more affordable advent now of HDTV with
the ~1080 resolution, which at least sounds better then 1024 x 768 on the
computer monitor, I am wondering if high definition TV might not now be
better without any conversion degradation? Has anyone done this yet to
confirm?

Thanks.

Well, sort of. I have an X-box connected to a Toshiba 42 in hdtv
using component cable. 95 percent of the games will only display at
480P. Only about a half dozen X-box games have higher resolution
output. The tv can show it wide screen however and it looks a lot
better than on a regular tv, probably due to the component output.
