I know nothing about gameboxes - however my 8 yr old grandson is coming to visit. He has an X-Box 360 at his house which he about lives in front of. I've been planning to get a PS3 since it has a Blu-ray drive, to watch High Def DVDs. First though, I waiting to get that big screen LCD TV with several HDMI connections. However, I'm not ready yet to make the big buck TV choice plunge. Since my grandson is coming in two weeks, it just dawned on me. Couldn't I just get the PS3 now and connect it via video component connections to my 24" WS Dell monitor (which has DVI, S-Video, component, composite inputs) and then have 1080p resolution for games? Apparently Sony has available a PS3 cable with component video and stereo RCA audio (which I'd connect to headphones). Would this work? My grandson would in 7th heaven if it did.
