    A very big difference. Keep in mind not many Xbox games are HD compatible, but just about all are Progressive Scan compatible (in other words, 480p video, standard definition, but with the benefit of progressive video). That "HDTV 480p" on the back of some Xbox game boxes is a mistake.

    BTW, do you have your Xbox mod-chipped? Or is it an American one? If not, it'll only output standard Interlaced video and won't show too big a difference.

    As Lyris said, you will def notice the difference especially if you use the HD AV pack. The difference me and my mates have seen is superb, everyone has been commenting on the PQ, now i need to mod all of my mates xbox's, bloody typical. :D

    Lyrin,Br14n thanks for your comments.
    and yes my xbox is moded since the moment i got it hehe :)
    my main concorn is the "16ms"...
    sincem y pc monitor is a LG 1730S which has 12ms and its kinda "np" with playing movies.. i see no dizzing/ghosting/smearing/pictures jump while move from side to side.
    i just realy hope that 16ms aint that far away from 12ms ;)

    Hi,

    I rarely see any ghosting with my 16ms panel and PC games, you'll be fine.

    Al

    Edit when i say rarely, I actually don't think I have ever seen any.
