    Connecting PS2 ---> CPU monitor

    I have been trying to come up with a way to connect my PS2 so that I can play it on my cpu monitor and free up the TV in the living room for the wife. Video card is Radeon X800 Pro with an S-Video in and I believe RCA in with the smaller jacks. Now the ideal situation is to find a box with a rca in (from PS2) out to the monitor. I have both an old monitor with the regular connection and I have a flat screen with a digital connection (w/e its called dmi or something). I have been to radio shack, compusa, and best buy and everyone knows what to do noone seems to know wtf this box is called. Anyone have any idea's?

    Youre wording two different things. Are you trying to just use your monitor with your PS2? Or are you trying to plug your PS2 in your computer and then have it display on the monitor? (because you mentioned your vid card specs)

    If its the first, is this what your looking for? http://www.cablesnmor.com/vga-rca-cable.html If it is, just search for RCA to VGA in google and youll prob find cheaper prices.

    If its the second.. uhh, youll want a RCA to S-video cable/adaptor and then youll have to mess with your video card properties.

    Either way unless you have a monitor with sound, you wont be getting sound, unless you plug them into some speakers or buy a Y adaptor the takes both channels turns them into one.

    Glad to help. I would google it a bit more though. Doesn't seem like there's too many reviews on it.

    TV tuner card. I used one for a long time for my PS2.

    Just with TV tuner cards, the money you pump into one = the quality you will get usually.
