DVD is 480p at best (some are 480i).

h.264 is great for movies. A decent rip of a 2hr movie should weigh in at about 15gb for 720p. A very, very good rip will weigh in at about 25- 30GB for 1080p. Will you notice the dif between 30gb and 15gb rips? Depends on your tv. IF its under 60inches...I doubt it. Hell if its under 50" look into BDRips. That are in the under 10GB range!
