You guys are great. I thought I'd drop in again since you were so good at solving my last problem.
I am looking for a way to play my console games (Wii, PS2, Xbox 360, etc) through the monitor and speakers of my computer.
I've done a little research, and I've gathered that Composite signal is generally incompatible with monitors (VGA). It requires more than just a simple cable(?). I have an S-Video to composite cable, which I've used to connect my computer to my TV with great success, but I realize that that won't help me here.
I'm looking for an easy, inexpensive way to connect my console games to my computer, instead of using a TV. There seems to be tons of different adapters out there, but some are old and some don't have any reviews. Is there one that you guys have used and recommend?
Also, is there another way other than an expensive all-in-one adapter? Could you do the video and the audio separately to make it cheaper?
My PC has a standard Dell monitor and speakers. The graphics cards I am running is a Gforce 6800 by Nvidia. I don't wanna fry anything by hooking something up wrong or buying the wrong product.
Here are some pictures of the back of my monitor and PC, since I don't know the names of all the ports:
Any help you can be with this is much appreciated.
