HDMI cable for the PS3

Hey all

I just purchased a new 80GB PS3 (With GT5P of course)

But, in doing so i assumed (I know bad word) that it came with one

Could anyone help me in the right direction for a good one that i can go buy today?

Mucho appreciated!
Biz

ps - Is there a Fiat Forum GT5P online "club" as such?

Re: HDMI cable for the PS3

general HDMI cables rbought from the big stores are extortionately (spl?) priced. best place is somewhere like game:

optical cable is also a good idea when your using HDMI with Surround Sound =)

Lol thats where i got the PS3 from!

Ok cool, so the "GioTeck HDMI and Optical Cable Pack" would seem like a good choice?

Cheers for your help mate!

Buy them separately from Amazon, for instance, and both will be well under a tenner, including postage...

Re: HDMI cable for the PS3

Guys. A geek here from ps3forums.com is here. ME
I can assure you that all HDMI cables do the exact same job and the reason you are made to pay more is the quality of the cable on the outside, you know, the quality of the rubber used and the thickness. HOWEVER, HDMI sends a digital signal. 0's and 1's. Not ANALOG, With digital the data either gets there or it doesn't, it cannot vary (only over around 20metre distances but I doubt anyone here will be using over 20m)
Hope this helps. DO NOT EVER BE TEMPED TO PAY 50 FOR A MONSTER CABLE. IT HAS NO BENEFIT OVER ANY OTHER CABLE. IT IS JUST A BIG SCAM.
Dan
