I'd just use your PS3 wherever the HD telly is going, I'd imagine a PS3 will look pants in SD compared to HD.

yh of course it will be better on hdtv but for now i need a good cable wich will give a better picture. for example look at this Item number: 200129266985.
i saw this and as i dont know much about cables and stuff i just wanted to see if anything is better than this but will connect to a sdtv.

Yes that ebay item would work, But its not going to look great compared to HD!

yh mate im going to get a hdmi and this one but does anyone know if there is something better than this?

Bit of research seems to think an RGB Scart will give the best picture on an SDTV.

so the rgb scart is better than the s video cable?
just want to see wats the best before i buy.

I'd go RGB Scart every time if I was not using HDMI or component. In my view much better than Svideo.

Yes, the audio will come out the TV as normal, it's just an extra option.
