If you are using Component Cables with RCA plug ends colored Red, Green, and Blue, (plus a white and red for left and right channel audio) maybe not so much of a difference by going to HDMI. Some people say there is no difference at all.
Biggest advantage to me is that video and sound is carried over that one cable with HDMI using one plug end a bit bigger that a USB connection. Audio is also surround sound signal not just stereo as with the white/red audio cable.
Also, Component cables are analog in signal, so your cable box or others, convert a digital signal to analog, sends it out over the Component cables, and your TV has to reconvert them back to digital. Any time there is a conversion done you have the "chance" to degrade the picture.
HDMI cables are all digital and no need for conversion. Also since they are digital they work or they don't. No difference between a Monster $100 plus HDMI cable and a $10 HDMI cable from places like monovision.com. With Component cables being analog there is some credence to getting what you pay for as there are better grades of Component cables and of course they cost more.
HOWEVER if you are using a yellow RCA video cable, and the white/red for audio.... HDMI IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE !!! In fact using the yellow RCA ended single video cable is not capable for carrying an HD picture at all.
