Listen to the Psychic...
If you go for the Outlaw you will have money left to invest in a line conditioner ( for your DVD player, VCR and TV ), a few Highwire Wirewraps and decent interconnects, speaker cable and audio grade power cords. Don't skimp on these--your system will sound at least 50% better.
You can do very well by buying Radio Shack combined audio/video cables ($10.99 for a 1m set of three) for your component output of your DVD, if it's a short run. They are working very well in my Sony WEGA, with no bleeding of the reds, as it is supposed to happen on cheap cables.
I would advise you not to buy your cables and interconnects at Circuit City or similar--you'll get ripped off. Search the posts and you will find decent options. For example, I use Absolute Power Cords, which for $50 are a great buy. I read here that Audioquest made a 'figure 8' power cord like the ones DVD players use.
Last but not least, get a bottle of Pro Gold ($10-12), some Blue Tack, a few Vibrapods and some remnant shelves from IKEA to mount your components. To give you an example, I have my DVD player under my TV. The DVD player rests on four Vibrapods which in turn sit on a $2.50 MDF shelf I bought at IKEA. There's some Blue Tack under each corner to anchor the shelf to the TV table. Mounting a DVD player like this is cheap and really improves picture and sound quality.
