    I'm not so sure I agree with Skorp here. I was in the same situation as the OP and decided to go with the Nintendo branded cables. Mad Catz sells products I WILL NOT purchase. Monster Brand is OK if you can find a Wii version.

    These are good cables.

    And I suggest being patient and look through weekly ads and such so you don't get ripped off with a bundle.

    I would go for the Nintendo component cables so your Wii will output 480p (opposed to 480i without cables). You're always guaranteed quality with Nintendo's products. This is just my opinion, but I usually don't like to by 3rd Party accessories, but if you feel that you'd like to get them cheaper then go ahead.

    Components are the best but the RCA (composite) cables that come with it look pretty good

    Any Wii component cables will allow you to output 480p, not just ones made by Nintendo. Keep in mind that cables are cables. When it comes to component cables, you won't get any different picture quality if you buy $5 cables or $50 cables.

    I personally bought mine from an online retailer for $6. I can't remember off-hand what brand they are, but they work perfectly fine.

    Just remember to go in to Wii options and set the Wii to both 480p and Widescreen. Then be sure to set your TV options to "Fill" or "Stretch."
