    The Component Cable is worth it.

    SCART with a 32" HDTV looks horrible (like I've noticed) but in 480p (the resolution it'll run in) using the Component Cable it looks excellent.

    Yes, but you have to see which games look good on it. For example, Strikers Charged or Excite Truck or RE4WE will look amazing since they support 480p but PS2 ports like Godfather look just abit better than it's SCART counterparts.

    I was thinking. will it make a big difference on a normal older tv? I got a 32 in my room but its from 1990 something.

    I have the Offical Cables from Nintendo - they work a treat, so I recommend it. :)

    doesn't that talk for itself? 99% of all third party brands is rubbish. that includes:

    everything
    some more
    ^all of the above

    I ordered the Offical one for 18 notes from play.com, I would have paid that little bit extra and got it from GAME for the reward points but they where out of stock

    came today, the graphics a still noticably bad (which I think has more to do with the wii not being HD and me playing it on a HDTV more than anything) but the pic is much cleaner
