    Wii w/ monitor

    I want to get a widescreen LCD monitor to use for a 360 and a Wii. Is there any monitor that can satisfy both? I know I could hook up the 360 to the monitor using the 360 VGA cable, and there are ways to hook up the Wii (i.e. composite-to-VGA adapter). So what resolutions would I want the monitor to support? I read that using the 360 VGA cable unlocks a bunch of resolutions, so that wouldn't be a problem. But I would need 640x480 to be supported for the Wii, right (assuming I used composite-to-VGA)?

    Also, if I wanted to, say, play Zelda in widescreen 480p in all of its glory, then I would need to find a way to hook the component cables up to the monitor, and the monitor would need to support 848x480....right?

    I use the ATI TV wonder..It works great, the 360 uses the VGA cables andit's on input 2 on the LCD. I use the RCA cables from the Wii to connect to the ATI tv wonder which is connected to Input 2. Works like a charm...

    There is no lag dude...this would be a video connection and not an internet connection...Lag only happens when your internet connection is slow....

    Hi

    I have a slight variation on this thread in that i have a large LCD monitor with VGA and DVI connections. Is there something cheap and easy like a convertor to get from the standard WII connections to either of the above???

    I was thinking of doing the same but instead opted to blow 550 on a 32inch Toshiba LCD just this minute.
