the VE ships with a DVI-VGA (HD 15-pin) adapter plug. the real question is whether the card can output the component signal at all, ie whether the current drivers will enable it or not.
My pj will accept a component signal through its vga input so the cable adaptor is irrelevant to me. I would hopefully get the component signal off the 8500's vga output or, if not possible, off the DVI output by using the vga adapter plug. Those with only 3-rca component inputs on their display devices will have to use a breakout cable as well.
To my knowledge, there has yet to be any first-hand confirmation that the 8500 is currently able to output a component signal and whether on a dual head it will be enabled only on the DVI output. I would rather see it off the vga output.
