    I've looked everywhere for a Gamecube Cable with an S-Video Component. Hell, I can't even find a Monster cable!

    Also, note that the S-video cable for the N64 works on the Gamecube. As I was carrying my gamecube S-video cable up to pay for it, I noticed "Also works for N64!" on the box. I figured that the reverse was true for my unused N64 cable sitting at home so I put it back, went home, and tried it. Sure enough, the GC works just fine with the old cable and I saved $10.

    SNES, N64 and GameCube have all used the same AV connector, so any S-Video cable set for any of them will work. I got mine awhile ago, I think I got the madcatz one (it's purple). Works fine. Big improvement over composite.

    Bear in mind, oh European Gamecube owners, that this isn't the case for PAL ones. Nintendo, at the very last minute, removed the SVideo capability from the PAL Gamecube, as it was the easiest way of them supporting RGB instead. So none of those third party leads worked.
