    Yep, thats the cable. It will yield a much better picture than S-video. However, you can get it for half that price at pccables.com (good quality too).

    I use that kind of breakout cable on my line doubler to the component video inputs of my Mits, but don't know for sure about video card usage. Two of the five BNC connectors are not used--you just let them hang.
    However, I do know that the price is ridiculous. Check http://www.altex.com/ and search for "bnc" (the first four items are what you are looking for, called "15-pin High Density D-Sub") ...their 10-foot breakout cable is almost $60 cheaper than the Belkin one...and it is high quality (I am using one with my Mits 65907).
    I can't speak to their shipping or order fulfillment, since their store is just down the street from where I work...but their cables and prices are excellent.
