I have tried both the HDMI and VGA connections from the PC and the VGA has far better color reproduction and the fonts are alot easier to read.
The HDMI must process the signal slightly therefore it affects what the fonts and colors look like.
DVI-PC and DVI-VIDEO use different color specs (PC - 0-255, VIDEO - 16-235) so when you hook up a PC device to a video connector, the color space is off, this is why it looks slightly "off". You can compensate for this and tweak the RGB values in the nvidia and ati control applets and get it looking good tho. Also, as far as font readability goes, after you tone down the sharpness, turn off DRC and all the advanced PQ features, text is nice and crisp.

Is it a problem with the cables? Or is it just the tv is doing a lousy job of converting the 480p signal or something?
I have Wii hooked up to mine via generic third party component cables @ 480p and it looks fine. Nowhere near the quality of PS3 or 360 but still very decent. His plasma is probably a 720p device so of course its going to look better. It only has to scale the res to 1280x720 (or 1366x768 of its a 720p plasma), the XBR has to scale it to a significantly larger 1920x1080 so of course it won't look as good. (Wii looks MUCH better on my ancient Pioneer RPTV HDTV then it does on my XBR because it can display it natively @ 480p without scaling). Mess around with the DRC a bit and try playing with the detail enhancer and sharpness. I got it looking pretty sharp by fiddling with these options.
