    Plug ps2 into Dell UltraSharp 1907FP TFT

    Is there anyway to connect my ps2 to this monitor? (Dell 1907FP)

    http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna...dhs1&sku=53801

    the monitor doesnt have composite... but is there some sort of magic adapter that would do the trick?

    thanks.

    Looks a good way to do it. But £40 is expensive! Is there not just a simple adapter?

    there's no such thing as a cheap DVI to VGA adapter. you're thinking of DVI-I to VGA. DVI-I is a type of connector used on graphics cards, where both the digital pins (the array of pins in the connection) and analog pins (the plus-shaped section) are enabled. All the adapter is doing is changing the plug type - not the data itself. DVI-D (digital only) cannot be converted with one of those adapters.

    for a reasonable analogy, consider those "worldwide travel adapters" that let you plug one country's stuff into another's - but don't change the voltage when required (e.g. US voltage differs from UK)

    £40 is actually likely to be cheap tat. you need to look at spending closer to £100 for a decent VGA adapter (e.g. MicomSoft XRGB2+). alternatively, depending on the games you want to play, there's an official VGA cable - but it only works with a handful of games like Tekken.
