    Could be possible for the Wii to go HD by just having an external thing?

    Like enhancing the Wiimote with the Motion+?

    Never, ever. Simply not possible. And not just "backuploadingizimpossiblah"-impossible but really impossible.

    A HD wii would require at least a better graphics card

    The closest you can get to playing Wii in HD is playing a Wii game in Dolphin at a HD resolution, but you also need a very powerful PC to get games running well.

    i've got my wii runing in almost HD with a component to hd converter it's running off a hdmi cable and it looks way clearer and crisper than the component could ever hope to achieve.

    If you have a decent HD TV, it will up convert the signal to HD. But it wont look much better. The video processing power of the wii is laughable.

    a tv might upconvert the signal, but even if you managed to hook it up through hdmi, the most the wii wil ever put out is 480p

    read my damn post before you post idiot comments trollzilla! i said it looks way clearer and crisper than the component could ever hope to achieve. i've even done a comparison myself by swapping the component back it a lot more clearer running it off the hdmi cable which is to be expected.

    huh? I didn't say anything about your HDMI or component jibber jabber. I was just making a statement. Glad it looks clearer for you.
