My last video card had s-video with a component cable so I could connect it to the tv. This one only has 2 dvi ports + hdmi.

I want output to component so I bought a dvi-i -> component cable but it doesn't work. I'm not sure if it's even supposed to work - does it?

If not, the card came with a dvi->vga adapter. There are cables for vga to component aswell - will that work? it seems the same as straight dvi to component with an extra step though...

Is it possible to do this without an expensive converter?

DVI to VGA and then VGA to Component will work if your TV/Monitor is looking for an RGB signal through the Component input, this is very rare, but some TV's do have a separate source setting for VGA-Component. What type of TV are you using that doesn't have any HDMI or even a VGA?

I have a mitsibishi HD1000u projector that I have component cables running with (I have PS3 & Xbox setup with it also).

I don't know if the video card is DVI-I or DVI-D because I've seen it listed as both and can't find any proper specs.

I tried a DVI-I to component cable like the one there at avdgear but it didn't do anything.

Why not just use the HDMI or VGA input on your PJ? Either of those would give vastly superior results for PC use. Also it looks like your PJ will accept component video through the VGA input.
