and is this as good as the first one I posted? http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-HT-S3500-5-1-Channel-Theater-Receiver/dp/B0077V88V8/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Hi, I'm new to home theater systems! Since this is going to be a Christmas present for me the budget can't go over $300. Can someone tell me which one I should pick?
And also If I can get a system just as good for less money, please tell me!

I'm going to be using this to hook up my ps3, tv, wii, and cable box. My cable box only has dvi, component inputs, and digital audio outs so I will need a converter if I get the Denon Htib. Do you think the inconvience will make it better to just get the Onkyo one? The Devon one retails $600 newly though so maybe it will be better to get that one then?
