I have a lot of DVI to HDMI adapters myself and can see no difference between expensive cables and cheap ones. I wasted 200 bucks on a 6 foot monster cable, but spent $40 on a 25 foot monoprice cable and have seen no difference at all.
If you're playing blu-rays on the pc and you are not hdcp compliant get AnyDVD HD software to get the full 1080p resolution. I really dislike this whole HDCP compliant nonsense.
There are workarounds for everything.
