I have an NTSC console. I bought a $7 generic S cable off if Amazon. It was an improvement over the normal cables. Then I sprung for the official s cable. Did not really notice a difference over my generic.

@FoamCow: My experience (here in NTSC land) is that with a regular N64 console, on an old CRTV, S-Video cables are much better than composite or RF. I bought a cheapo one off Amazon (US) for $7 bucks shipped and it performs the same as my $40 official S-Video cable.

However, we have a tread about certain funtastic N64 consoles (not ice blue) that produce a brighter, sharper image (they contain a certain motherboard revision). So for my Jungle Green (the N64 console I use), the composite and S-Video imagines are very comparable.

If you are trying to hook up to an HDTV that is a whole other ball of wax.
