I have been looking into buying a TV that I can use my PC, 360 and PS3 on. My PC only has DVI and s-Video (ATI Radeon HD4850 graphics card). I have found only one TV with DVI and it is too small. Would a DVI to HDMI cable take away from the quality that I would get from DVI to DVI? Or would it be the same? Please respond soon I'm going crazy :bounce:

it would be the same as HDMI=DVI+SOUND. There shouldn't be any noticeable difference.

DVI and HDMI are essentially the same signal except that HDMI carries sound as well. So a DVI to HDMI adapter will not result in any loss of picture quality. You still wont get sound through the cable but the picture will be the same.
