The actual change in pixel density is only equivalent to going from 640x480 to 960x720, which is hardly a revolutionary jump.
I don't know what reality you come from, but in mine there's quite a night and day difference, especially with a DVI cable. You may as well just ask why you would use a component cable vs a composite cable. Huge difference.
