Ok my tv tops out at 1080i, will that look fine or is 720p and 1080p look a lot better? It would need to be a vast difference for me to upgrade.

I'm not sure I can help,

but what size screen is your TV, and how far away from it do you sit when you are gaming?

The difference is more like in stuff like colors and clairity of the image. I can't give you an exact answer, but if your TV tops out at 1080i, you can't use 1080p. From the way your post looked, it didn't look like you knew that so just incase you didn't know, 1080p is the highest resolution out right now for TV's at least.

At that distance, cliver, I believe you'll find the prevailing wisdom is to not spend the extra money for a 1080p screen.

I'm assuming you would purchase a new system, possibly 32", and most experts are saying that on that size screen it would be very difficult to tell the difference between a 1080 or 720 image.

I believe refresh rates become important when gaming. If you are getting fairly sharp, flicker free, smooth images with your 360, then you may not get much impovement no matter what you would buy.

Unfortunately, though, I don't have a 360, so maybe another member that uses one will be able to provide some first hand information that will be helpful to you.

I've always believed in a mixture of :

High Contrast Ratio and Rez. for TV's (For color clairity and sharpness/crispness)

Im not very experience with HD since we just got it 1/2 year ago but playing around with the settings i didn't notice a big difference between the 2 ...
(720p & 1080i)


But when we switched over to 1080p we saw a moderate difference nothing to go crazy and fork up money for unless ur picky

(I have a 360) works and looks nice on 1080i
