    Your going to want a different TV anyway because the one you have is 16ms which is not good for gaming.

    does the component cable really make a huge difference? I dont really know that much about this stuff, but it doesnt seem like it would be worth 35$ just for a clear-er picture.

    It is definitely worth the price of admission. Click for Gamespot cable comparo. Might as well get the most out of the hardware.

    You can get a scart adaptor to allow S-video input, but that would be useless seeing as your TV already has S-video input which also gives a clearer image.

    You'll need an S-Video cable for that and, as far as I know, the Wii doesn't include one in the box. Nintendo's official site doesn't seem to offer one. Gamestop does but it's $30 which is kind of expensive for S-Video and it doesn't release until 12/26:
