What kind of cables would one normally find when buying a SNES? Is it tulip, or SCART? Or something else?

Thanks :).

rca (composite) - but I know for a fact that an S-Video cable designed for a cube works on it as well (Nintendo's been using the same video connector for a long time)

Yeah, I know..

So, I'm gonna get one with S-Video out, then. There is no NES connector with SCART, so I'm gonna go S-Video -> SCART -> VGA to play it on my monitor :).

What kind of image quality will that give me?

Heh.. I can expect equal quality to that of a TV?
