    Pretty much. If you want the best picture quality it is not cheap. Plenty of people are perfectly fine with composite or s-video though.

    I think the best middle ground for many folks are those component cables that have been released recently since they give you most of the picture upgrade without the huuuge outlay into the equipment needed for analog RGB. In many cases I think they are close to the quality of straight RGB if your display handles it well, if you've got a component CRT it's very very close.

    I would say it's certainly good enough. Especially when you factor in, like you said, the much smaller footprint. It's just a single cable into the display (or switch). Also it's very easy to find generic ypbpr switches and a decent sd crt. So it's a much cheaper route that is quite close.

    It all depends how lucky you are at finding stuff and quite frankly how long you've been looking. I've found CRT RGB monitors as cheap as 2.00, and not every system I might want to get RGB output from has a works on a stock system out of the box component cable even if I wanted to go that route. It would require mods or further signal conversion.
