Default Input Lag on HDTV's and how to reduce it?

So ive been doing a ton of research and debating with my friends over my sony 32in tv (http://store.sony.com/p/KDL-32BX300/en/p/KDL32BX300) Its a couple years old and since moving to a new apartment and primarily playing pc games for months before h4's release ive been noticing my shot is wayyyy off. I used to play on component cables, then I switched to HDMI noticing my shots a bit better but not where it once was. I just switched back to component and my shots the best so far. My question is which input is the best? vga,component or hdmi? Im aware of game mode and video processing which effects the input lag. Ive also heard of audio processing effecting the lag.
Also does anyone know of a test to determine the lag?

Just take an aluminum bat to your tv and buy a monitor. Problem solved.

I have monitors and use them for the most part but when I sit down to play something besides halo its nice to have a large screen. Its in game mode as of now.

Throw your component cables out the window, put your tv in its native resolution, and hook up hdmi or vga.
I don't know why you wouldn't just use your monitor.

Have done that, the native res is 1080p... I used it all through halo3 and reach and had zero problems with it vs people using monitors... For the most part when I play in tournaments or GBs I use my monitor. But as I said I like to use it to play lots of other games as well and the bigger screen is just better.
