    Basically, I would like to play my Playstation 2 on my PC monitor.

    My PC monitor is not very expensive, its a 15" TFT which was £100 about 16 months ago.

    What do I need to do in order to play my PS2 on my monitor and is it possible?

    The monitor only has a VGA cable which is going to my graphics card.

    The reason I am asking because I have seen people on these forums with pictures of their XBOX 360's hooked up to their PC monitors.

    Thanks, Steve :)

    The XBOX360 can output straight to VGA with no fancy boxes or anything, you just need the VGA cable.

    With PS2 it's a bit different as it doesn't have native VGA out.

    I'm using a Leadtek Winfast DTV1000-T Digital TV Tuner Card (GX-074-LT) at the moment with S-Video from the PS2 and it works fine. Not perfect quality but definitely playable with no lag or excessive CPU usage.

    try to get a xrgb there are 2 on ebay right now it is a upscaler and will work with any console on the market.

    I use one for my retro stuff (all input via rgb) into a 32" tft and they look lush
