pman, I assume you meant the SD-643HD5...
I have both an Elite 510 and a 710, and I've rebuilt about 6 of them for other people... They are great TVs. I have also looked over the schematics to some extent.
To be perfectly honest, considering your set is several years newer that the x10s, I would stay with what you have. Particularly if yours has the horizontally mounted power supply board. Yes, there is some additional circuitry in the Elites, but if you have your TV cleaned and calibrated in a way that Mr. Bob would approve of, you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference.
Your money would be better spent on an HD Fury or a DVDO VP 30 or Edge if you don't already have one... combine that with a cal and you're set will hang with the Elites and most other sets out there today.
Just my opinion.
