    For my money, especially as you're likely to get a killer prive on the panny, it's got to be the way to go, stuff the resolution. You need a graphics card that can cope with the panny's native res, a radeon probably, an RGB or S-Video lead for the PS2, they look c**p on composite, and a RGB-component converter for sky, and dvd could do scart pass thro unless it's very good on component, or offers progressive scan. The PD3000 might offer scart connectivity, but the res will always be a problem for PC, and the picture is just not up to the standard of a well set up panny.
    If you plan on using component vid for DVD, you might either consider an amp that offers switching, or look at the NEC VP4 which has 2 sets of component connections, and outperforms the panny 5 on all counts, though at higher cost. Still, from the right dealer you might get a 3 yr warranty for less than 4k
