5850 to TV with Component hook ups

hi folks,

I just got a new video card, a ATI chip 5850. I love it but one small thing I forgot to even think about when I bought this card is the fact that my flat screen TV (Samsung model number SPP4251AX/XAA) only supports S-Video and Component inputs while my video card has DVI and HDMI.

I know that there are 20 buck adapters out there which have a DVI to Component, however, I have heard mixed things when it comes to whether or not this will actually work (for both video and sound to the TV).

Can anyone help give me a solid answer of what I need to do or get to have this work?

Thank you in advanced!

It won't push sound as DVI doesn't support sound, you'll either have to use an external source (speaker jack, USB) or DisplayPort/HDMI.
