    You need to be sure the monitor has component inputs as the Wii doesnt support VGA.

    Look around the back of the monitor, what inputs does it have?

    hey

    Well I think there is an official D sub, otherwise known as D-Terminal cable you can get for the Nintendo Wii. But I think it's only available in Japan. Well it's used on Japanese televisions.

    BTW, as it's an LCD based monitor, I would be wary of the display quality. As I think LCD monitors arn't meant to have the best display quality when they arn't set at their native resolution, as they only emulate other resolutions, see Native resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    Hold on a sec, what do you mean it doesn't "support" VGA. Nintendo has made no mention of releasing VGA cables, but are saying the console is INCAPABLE of a VGA signal?

    hey

    @Anarchangle: I think it's just that Nintendo is not releasing any VGA Cables. I think a 3rd party may release a VGA cable, otherwise you can probably modify a Nintendo Wii Component or D-Terminal cable into a VGA (hd-15) cable.

    Well I have seen tutorials/guides for modifying a X360 D-Terminal cable and also GameCube Component cable into VGA (hd-15) cables, but I'm not sure if the theory from these tutorials could be used for modifying the Nintendo Wii cables.
