    Component VS composite, does it matter?

    Check out http://thewiikend.googlepages.com/zeldacomparison.htm to see for youself how much component cables make a difference. It is quite amazing that 2 extra cables could add so much colour.

    Very nice find. The component cables are very much worth buying.

    I know, in particular Wii golf, the trees are aweful, but zelda makes up for it!

    Component cables "work" if you have component inputs. Check your TV. With the old-fashioned "tube" screens, I believe you'd see improved picture.

    You wouldn't get the progressive scanning; that's for screens that support that feature.

    That wasnt the best comparison ive seen. One on IGN shows the difference much better, i'll scout around and try to dig that one up too.

    EDIT: Found this instead, really shows a difference with link and the hookshot

    if anyone is going to buy them i think u shud go for ones with gold connection as thats the best way for a connection(GOLD) as its the best conductor. the official component cable is gd but u will get better graphics with an unofficial cable with gold connections. like the blaze one
