Will Hd/component Cables Remove The Input Lag?

Let's imagine that a really bad cable existed, one that delayed the signal by 10 times that amount i.e. the delay would rise to 0.0001 seconds, or 0.1mS.
Given that the picture scan/refresh rate is 50/60 Hz (around 20mS), and the speed of your reactions is between 160 and 190mS, do you think that you could detect a 0.1mS difference in a video cable?
Now, cables that bad simply don't exist. If you find a cable that is 10% worse than typical you would be very unlucky, so you'd be looking for a difference of 0.000001 seconds.......
So no, the video cable brand makes no difference to the delay. It might affect the picture quality, but that's different.

What can you say about the input lag? That's my main concern. We're running out of tube tvs

Can anyone confirm if a HD component cable can eradicate input lag on an original Xbox to LCD?
Thank you for your reply!

The lag is a function of the display's image processing (Movax's point), not how the signal gets to the display (part of Heimdall's point.
You need a decent TV that allows you to bypass this as previously stated, not a different cable.
