    Wii on a monitor

    Is there a VGA cable for the Wii yet? Or some other way to play your Wii on your monitor?

    I do hope so.

    You can get component to vga cable things, but as far as I'm aware they're not cheap. You can also get RGB to VGA cables, but again your looking to spend about £50.

    Think the cheapest and easiest was isn't going to be through a PC, but the quality isn't going to be good enough for a monitor really.

    Shame really. I am set to get a new monitor in the near future, to go with my new PC, would have been nice to have had the ability to plug both the Wii and 360 into it, rather than just the 360.

    What sort of budget are you looking at? Some of the larger monitors have component, composite and s-video connects as well as DVI and VGA. I've got a 2407 and have wii-comonent, 360-VGA and PC-DVI.

    I haven't set a budget yet, have to wait till payday and see how my banks looking. It won't be loads, but it won't be just enough for a cheap one either.

    Won't be looking for something as big as you 2407
