    Im in the process of building an htpc, and am using the Asus a8n-vm csm motherboard. I would ideally like to connect via component and use my Yammy amp to do the video switching. Can anyone tell me if I can just use a vga (or dvi) to component cable to do this or do I need to purchase an additional gfx card with specific component out?

    I've never seen a GFX card with component out.

    I've seen D-sub (vga), DVI and S-VIDEO but no component
