HDMI only benefits when....

Absolutely NOT true! HDMI has been around quite a bit longer than Blu-Ray. It was developed in the home theater (HT) industry and used as a interconnecting method for connecting digital video plus 5.1 surround sound in the same cable. It is used between cable boxes and TVs. Between HT receivers and cable boxes. Between HT Receivers and TVs. Between DVD players (and now BluRay players) and receivers or TVs.
HDMI only benefits when....you use it for blue-ray?
It has just recently migrated into the computer world partly because more and more computers are being integrated into HT systems, and partly because the major TV makers also make computer monitors, and it cost more to support two connection formats. Plus, HDMI connectors are smaller.
It is important to note that the digital signal in HDMI is exactly the same signal as DVI. The difference being a DVI connection does not carry audio.

If everything else is equal, that is exactly right. The digital signal is exactly the same. That's why if you have a DVI monitor and a HDMI graphics card (or the other way around), a simple and cheap DVI to HDMI adapter is all you need to get them to work together.
So as far as picture quality...I won't see an improvement in HDMI over DVI?
