    Well my tv doesn't have that input but the Amplifier has it, will it work if I plug it into my Amp ?

    Thanks, I don't want to spend 40$ for nothing

    I had a 26" square mono telly. Then ordered wii. I bought a new cheap Widescreen stereo telly 28" at the same time. Wii came after I got the new telly, so I hadn't thought about graphics being better or worse or seen any difference, but after actually seeing that link at the top, i can understand now that the old telly would have been crap, and I wouldn't have realised.

    Still haven't looked at wii on old telly, not much need to now.

    FYI , composites cables are 480I , while component goes 480P on the Wii (components can go up to 1080P on other devices) .

    the I and the P are for the picture refreshments . so , technically , there's not suppoed to be a difference when you take a PICTURE of the game . but when you PLAY it , it's a lot more fluid , as the pictures refreshments are progressive (P) , instead of interlaced (I)

    gold plated stuff is only for the signal , and it's not better when it's new . gold doesn,t degrade over time . so the image will stay perfect as long as you have the gold plated cables . the metal ones will wear (cuz of the electric signal) and the image will be less precise .

    The only way to see a real difference between a gold plated and a regular cable , both new , would be to take a 200' cable of each , and see what it's like when you change them.

    I am using component cables on a non-HDTV. It does make a difference even then, colours are sharper and generally the picture looks better. Probably not worth running out and paying $50 (Aust) for them though for an Interlaced TV (I got them for $10 though through KMART as they were incorrectly priced and had to give them to me for that amount - then they're worth it).

    Only negitive I have with them though is that Zelda OoT (GC Version) doesn't look as good - its too sharp and the textures just don't look that good that way.

    When I got my cables the $60 (which I returned a month later LOL, I much rather get the $25 ones) I really didn't notice a HUGE difference.. until I noticed the mask Midna wears, if you look at the one without component, you can barely tell that there is any markings at all on it (very blurry/smudged like)... But when I changed it to component cables, it was crystal clear, I never noticed the details before...

    Component makes a huge difference, maybe not at first, but if you look closely, the colors and sharpness increase dramatically. Zelda looks a hell of a lot better.

    - I play on a Sony 40inch HDTV LCD Widescreen brand new ( with incredible quality picture, thats where my $2.5k went for Christmas )

    In my opinion get the cables if you have an EDTV or HDTV... Its worth it, specially for $25
