Only PAL Game Cube’s support RGB natively. NTSC GameCube’s support S-Video, which still produces a good picture.  GameCube’s with the digital-out port can output up to 480p!  More info on video outputs, as well as the Game Boy Player attachments is below.

In Conclusion:

If you want the best quality from your GameCube, you’ll need a GameCube with the digital-out port.

– If you’re only a casual GameCube user and don’t use the GameBoy Player Adapter, I’d strongly recommend just using a Wii, as early models are fully backward-compatible, including the actual controllers. Also, the Wii opens up an amazing door of opportunity, as described in the Wii section of this site.
