    Default Video cables - component or composite?

    Is it true that connecting with the component outputs produces a better picture than composite?

    I dont want to spend 15 on wires unless it is of a clear benefit.

    Yep - Bound to be superior, as is Firewire and Svideo

    Howdi,

    apologies mark for gate crashing your post -

    What are you connecting with component outputs instead of composite? your monitor?

    The reason I ask is I had two options when hooking up my monitor to the actual computer tower, I had allsorts of cables and I didn't know which one was best so I guessed.

    If your not talking about hooking up the monitor ignore my general ignorance of your posted subject matter.

    Cheers

    Component is better because it is a high def connection, Composite is standard def. You do need an HDTV or monitor for Component to work though.

    This is utter rubbish!

    Component connections have been around for far longer than what has been known as HD and have always been superior. There are also several different types of component connection.
