    I've recently moved into halls at University and don't have a television. I would really like to be able to play my PS2 and was wondering if there was a way to plug it into my LCD monitor which has a DVI and VGA input.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    i currently use an eyetv hybrid and take it in via the s-video or composite input to the unit. it might be good for your situation you can also watch tv on it. the biggest problem is that the output video of the ps2 really isn't vga compatible natively.

    I've heard a tv tuner isn't the best way to go as there is a delay, rendering it useless for games? It's also a bit out of my price range as a student.

    I take it it's not going to be as simple as finding an RGB>VGA adapter (haven't found one yet).

    My LCD's widescreen 19" so nothing too big. I guess I'll start saving. Thanks for all the help.
