    Here's a comparison with and without the cables. Put your mouse over the pics to see them with component cables. That's a pretty old comparison but it should give you an idea. I've never tried them with COD so i can't comment on the difference it will make.

    Component cables are worth it, yeah.

    It does add more noticeable jaggies, but the positive is it makes things a bit sharper and cleaner and a little more vibrant too.

    Component video looks awesome, I have it. BUT 480p is hardly HD.

    The graphics just improve a bit from 420i to 420p.
    The only reason I got it was so that I could watch my TV and do the Wii.My Tv requires it.

    Anyone try VGA cables? I heard it's better but haven't tried it myself.

    There are rumours Nintendo will release a revision of the Wii in 2010, that will support HD technology much better.
    So if you really want HD graphics, and don't have a Wii yet, wait for that one. It may never come though....

    seeing as the cable is only about £5 inc p&p on that big auction place, why not just get it anyway!! [​IMG]

    And yes it makes a difference, obviously!! [​IMG]
