Ok, i recently found out that after 6 years of using a regular composite (the red, white and yellow ones) cable for my xbox that my tv supported component. What im wondering is should i switch to component or stay with the regular ones? The problem is my tv is hdtv, does that make any difference in the quality of the component hook up?

absolutely go composite over componet.

composite video is at the bottom of the food chain. S-video offers a noticable improvement over composite. Component offers a slight improvement over S-video and then it's only really noticable on large screen TV's that are properly set up. So if you have a hdtv then you will notice a big jump in quality.

also pay attention to the quality of cables you use. won't be a big deal coming from the x box. but if you upgrade to xbox 360 you will get better quailty picture with better cables.
