See http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/VGA/AccessoryList.aspx where the NVIDIA intermediate connectors model numbers are detailed, 
search for those.
The VIVO one also works fine.
My NVIDIA cards use 9 pins.  A quick count might be worthwhile.
I wouldn't bother trying anything that not specifically labelled as NVIDIA unless you build it yourself!
Until I am shown that component 1080x is significantly inferior to digital I will remain in this analogue camp.
I need some fancier kit before I can decide that.
Do let us know how you get on with component, what are you going to drive?

I have an MSI fanless NS8400GS-TD256EH I was going to use on a FE for
VDPAU... this card supports component video output, but didn't come
with a cable (uses the svideo output).  From reading online this card
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-video#7_pin_mini-DIN) uses a
nonstandard svideo to component wiring.  I can't find anyone selling a
cable specifically for this card; does anyone know where I can get a
cable with this wiring?
