Default wii 480p -- cabling ?

Can someone link me to some decent cables for the wii to get the full 480p? Are they all just as good?

I've heard the official Nintendo Brand component cables are the way to go. That's what I'm using in my setup anyways

I'm guessing these would have no benefit on regular yellow/red/white inputs, correct? I know that I don't have component on the back of my TV; only yellow/red/white.

I'm using knock-off component cables for the wii, they work fine and are significantly cheaper http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-...j-70-1rch.html

I think you need component hookups, like on a PC monitor... I'm just looking for the highest definition possible, since the Wii looks like poo on my 2407.

Same here. i got some knock off universal Component cable for the Wii, xbox360, and PS3 (i think). It was only like $15, and the quality is perfect. Knock off cables should be just fine.

We just hooked up a cable we bought off eBay. I think it's 3rd party, I'll have look, but since we didn't pay very much for it, I'm pretty sure. The picture looks better than it did with just the basic cable that the Wii comes with.
