what you need is a card that supports your component. ATI's all in wonder cards are good for this kind of thing. VGA does not transmit sound. I have never herd of a vga to component so you wont be finding that I don't think.

what sort of TV do you have? standard TV, HDTV (plasma, LCD, or DLP Rear projection TV)?

Even if you had a VGA to componet cable, VGA/DVI/RGB does not output sound they only output viideo, so the only way to do it like the others have said is through the sound card, tell us what sort of TV you have and we could help you further.
