    I've recently hooked my 360 up to my monitor using a vga cable adapter that microsoft sells and im wondering if theres anything like this I can buy to get my wii on my monitor. It doesn't have component ports just a dvi port.

    Anyway to do this?

    nothing that would be easier to find at say a walmart radiosdhack target etc? Sorta sucks that microsoft embraces this and has even mad a vga cable for it and for some reason for the wii I have to by a box to switch the signals and what not.

    If there isnt is there one online that you can trully recomend and know works?

    Gefen can get you to and from just about any signal spec:

    These are fairly high end too - lots of folks I know using them on various Home Theater configurations.

    I don't think you want to use that video card input? That's for capturing video, doesn't seem like an optimal way to display the Wii on your PC (though Wii-in-a-window would be pretty trick :D )
