    Component is able to push 1080p from the PS3 to your TV. Not all TV's can recieve 1080p from component cables.

    If your PS3 can output 1080p for Gran Turismo HD then your PS3 can output 1080p for Blu-Ray. Same with your TV. If it'll accept GTHD at 1080p then theres no reason why it wouldn't take Blu-Ray at 1080p.

    I don't think it's just a PS3 thing, afaik all blu-ray players only play a max 1080i over component. You need to use HDMI for 1080p blu-ray movie playback.

    Monoprice is a good place to buy accessories! You should get 3" or 6" Gold Plated HDMI Cable because last time I bought 15" and its too long to connect my PS3 to Sony Wega 55" HDTV LCD. Its all about HDMI that deliver 1080p for Blu-Ray Games and Movies! I'm planing to buy my own Sony Bravia 46" LCD HDTV that support 1080p.
