    Hiya everyone. I'm planning on getting an old ACD soon (not technically old, but a 20" silver) so accompany my mac mini (whenever they update it). Is there any way to rig it so that I can have a Ps2 hooked up to the display in addition to the mini, and switch between the two? Would the Ps2 even support that resolution?
    If not, if anyone could post a good monitor that would work for both the mini and Ps2, resolution considered? Thanks!

    Without even stopping to consider whether it's possible in some manner, it will look absolutely horrible if you figure out a way.

    I don't think its supported by sony, you can google "Playstation 2 VGA" and see what happens. However, you probably would not want to do this anyway, since most PS2 games are in 640 x 448 interlaced, while the 20" monitor is 1680X1050. Therefore games are going to look pretty bad on it. I wouldn't play PS2 on anything other than a standard definition TV.
