Nintendo.com, 29.95 with no tax and you save gas


Games WILL look like they have more "jaggies" because everything will be sharper, it wont smooth a single thing on ANY game. They clear up the image, give you brighter colors, and deepen the blacks.

While they do all that they also enhance the flaws in the graphics


Overall they're worth it but don't expect they'll make all the game look better, they don't improve graphics at all.
They just give you the clearest picture of the graphics that are already there, good and bad.

Google "Penguinunited".  They sell component cables for a lot cheaper, and people have said that the quality is quite good.

I bought the $50 GameStop cables.  They work great, but very expensive.  :cry:

Well if your TV doesn't accept component then no, don't buy them because you can't use them.
Are you buying an LCD monitor or TV, if it's TV more times them not you'll have component cable hookups.

monoprice.com sells good cables for cheap, but i dont think they have the wii cables :( I'm waiting for my cheap gamestop to have them in stock as well as the LAN adapter.

Yes, when they say HD component they mean just component, they're just trying to make it sound fancy
