Re: What's this cable for?
With the labeling you provided it indicates that the cable is used to hook your PC up to a display device like a TV that accepts "component" input. There is multiple ways to cable video. The following is a list of the more standard ones in order of worst to best
composite = one cable with an RCA jack carrying the video signal
Svideo = multiple cables within one cord with a multi contact DB type connector
component = 3 cables with RCA jacks for multiple signals
HDMI = full digital signal with one DB type connector.
