It depends on the SCART cable; it’s still not clear exactly what kind of cables or adapters you’re using or how you’ve connected it to an unmodded NES.

If you were trying to use something like a composite+stereo RCA to SCART adapter, or a combination of a male-to-male SCART cable, a composite+stereo SCART breakout/injector, and RCA cables to connect your NES to the OSSC, then you’re likely not going to use any of that.

Most RGB mods for the NES involve fitting either an 8-pin DIN connector or a Nintendo AV Multi-out port (like what’s on the SNES, N64, and GameCube), in which case you would need to pick up a SCART cable that matches the port that gets fitted to your NES.

If cost matters to you, I’m not sure how expensive RGB modding ends up being, because you have to take into account the cost of the board, installation (which is not simple), and the SCART cable; it might end up being cheaper to pick up a RetroTINK 2X and an HDMI->VGA converter, which will be needed to hook the RT2X into the OSSC.
