What sort of picture/performance issues are you having? I have a dual- 
link DVI cable to my Westinghouse 42" display. I've tried it in the  
1080p DVI port, the 1080i DVI port and I've tried HDMI vs. component  
video. They all look pretty much the same to me except I was getting  
weird artifacts at 1080i that disappeared with 1080p, so I left it  

The short answer is that a good quality DVI cable should look  
identical to a good quality HDMI cable.
