    I have a 51" rear projection Sony Wega TV. I think this TV has a pretty good picture for a non-HD TV, however im pretty sure that it does have component cables in the back. Thus far, I have only ever used the standard composite cables. My question is, how much of a difference would i see in picture if i switched to component cables? will i only see a big change with an HD TV? I'm just wondering if its worth the extra money down the line.

    its got progressive scan so it would be at its highest quality if you got component cables cause yours is prolly almost hd just like the wii

    so yes you would probably see a good difference

    Oh you will most definitely see a difference. Get the components, you won't be sorry.

    yeah its a big difference. the wii uses Y'PbPr style component cables opposed to the regular RGB components. if your tv is kind of on the older side, i'd check it your tv can accept these.

    Of course a TV having component doesn't mean it can support 480p too, your best bet is to check the manual that came with it. However, most people don't seem to keep the manual.

    If you can afford a TV like that then you can afford to spend a few extra bucks on the appropriate cables for you TV.
