OK check what comes with the one you are getting. Some come with cables that allow attaching to Component and svideo. They connect via a PS2 type connector to the card. This is a better way to do it then getting a aftermarket cable which may or may not work with your card.

I've put 720p Component over a 10m cable from one of those adapters no problem.

It will support 1080p. It will not support HDCP but that is only a problem if you are playing blueray and even then can be overcome.
