    I have a nintendo 64 and no TV.

    Anyone know how (if possible) to hook it up to a white intel C2D iMac?

    Any help much appreciated, would love to get on the old n64 and do not want to buy a brainwash box, I mean TV.

    Thanks :D

    Hello there

    what you want to do is indeed possible by the use of an external tv card, you can't just connect it to one of the ports on the iMac

    here is what you would need

    Hope this helps =]

    p.s n64 rocks ^^

    ^ not really. the screen is integrated, not a stand alone. just get a cheap external display and the neccessary adapters if needed.

    Not sure if this is a suitable alternative, but you could get an emulator such as Sixty Force. www.sixtyforce.com

    Then you can just search for Roms at places like www.doperoms.com . The ROMs are compatible with both Mac and Windows.

    :D
