I would second this.  I bought some fairly expensive shielded cable and made up a fly lead to my wall socket basically because the quality of the picture looked pretty poor.  Picture quality immediately improved dramatically.  I suspect that there is a lot of radio frequency interference from the PC, or something else nearby.

Suggest trying to get a decent shielded cable on your system
