    Aside from the fact that component has 3 video outputs, and no audio, versus the HDMI which is only one cable that transfers both video and audio, HDMI cables offer the highest quality of audio and video.

    For my PS3 to the HDTV, I use both the HDMI and optical audio cable--only because the speakers on my TV suck (and my home theater system kicks ass) ;)

    the size of your tv is also a factor. if its over 40inches hdmi will be better. if its smaller the difference is minimal

    No it isn't. HDMI provides a higher quality and more crisp image. I'd go with HDMI, you can't go wrong with it.
