You don't need a $60 HDMI cable. You can pick up HDMI cables for about 90% less than that.

Keep in mind with high resolution you have to have a high end video card to play the game you want at the high resolution levels.

I have a w2207w widescreen from HP and that will use the HDMI to play the video games, highest resolution for that is 1680... but if you go higher in inches, then i think it goes up to 1920 i think....

but anyways, you only need 1080 for HD

If you take a look at my TV on the wall.

that is a 1080p 1920 vizio 32" and i got that for 370 dollars at wallmart

love that tv.. and that has 3 HDMI
