When I switched from component to DVI on my Sony LCD RP, I noticed little difference in HD picture quality - the picture settings needed adjusting, after that it looked as good or slightly better than component.
Where I really saw the difference was in SD channels. The analog SD channels went from awful to almost watchable - a big improvement.
I say if you have the inputs, it's worth purchasing a DVI cable to see for yourself.
