I HAVE AN OLDER HDTV WITH NO HDMI INPUT. I JUST BOUGHT PLAYSTATION 3. I WAS TOLD TO GET THE FULL HD EXPERIENCE FOR PS3, I NEED TO GAT A HDMI/DVI CABLE CONVERTER.IS THIS TRUE AND DOES BESTBUY CARRY THEM ?
In my opinion, you should be fine with getting just component cables.
There is a difference, but it's not a very big difference.

Tips for a great answer:
HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.
If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.
Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.
Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.
