    There is a noticable increase in the quality of graphics. I have them, and I'm happy I bought them

    If your tv supports component cables then it will work.

    And that's a problem because...? The Wii isn't there for pretty graphics. I say be happy with a smooth looking blurry picture. Do you really want to see all of those pixels in all their square glory? I've noticed on certain games, a sharp picture can often make the graphics too confusing. Need for Speed Underground 2 with my S-Video cable on the Gamecube was a challenge, because all the city lights, and reflections were so clear that it was hard to tell where the turns were.

    Use the official RGB SCART cable instead. I'm guessing you have SCART plugs on your TV?
