Nvidia GeForce 8500GT vs ATI Radeon HD 4200

I'm looking to hook my desktop up to my Sony Bravia 32"LCD TV for movies and gaming, and while trying to decide which output to use, I came across this dillema.

I have a Gigabyte MA785GMT-UD2H Motherboard with an onboard ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card. The motherboard has VGA, DVI, and HDMI outputs.

I am currently using an Nvidia GeForce 8500GT, which offers VGA, DVI, and S-Video outputs.

My TV has VGA, HDMI, and and component inputs.

I have been using the 8500 via a VGA cable and an audio cable, but I was thinking of switching to my onboard 4200 so I can use one HDMI cable.

How do these two options compare? Is one of these options clearly superior? Should I purchase a DVI to component cable and test each of them?

Thanks in advance?
