I would definitely look into upgrading your preamp / receiver before buying into the external scaler idea.

Also, HDMI to DVI converters have been around for a while. I have friends that have not changed out displays because they are happy with their HDMI to DVI conversion.
This may not be bad advice since he isn't even using a Receiver in his setup.

The Sherwood Newcastle Units are likely the least expensive units to do this and will cost right around what a video processor/scaler costs.
