Best way to connect my HTPC to a LG LCD TV

This is my first post so please be gentle :rolleyes:

I have just bought a HTPC and am wondering which is the best way to connect it to my LG LCD TV. The video card in the HTPC is this: SAPPHIRE HD 3650 512MB DDR2 PCI-E

The TV only has 1 HDMI socket (old TV), and that is being used by my Sony DVD recorder. The other connections are component, s-video and scart.

I will be watching normal DVD's and .avi files as well as listening to music.

To my (uneducated) mind I think the component connection will be the best bet. Then again would it be worthwhile getting some kind of HDMI splitter so i could use that connection?

Lastly, I'm looking to do it on the cheap, so please, no suggestion of cables that cost hundreds!!! :D

Well, over to you all and many thanks in advance...
