    Wii Monitor Support.

    The 360 has a cable you can buy that allows you to hook it into a monitor and I'm wondering if the Wii has anything similar, or will have anything similar. I don't have any HD T.V.'s but I have a good LCD widescreen monitor that is aching for something other than the computer being hooked up to it.

    I don't have much experience in using monitors in place of TVs but here's a link that might help: http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-...er-things.html

    If you have a video capture card, or a Tv Tuner card, in your PC you should be able to hook this up. My Ati-Tv wonder has a Video In(composite)/S-Video. Im sure the newer tuners now have Component in....

    Ah, yeah that could work actually. I'm pretty sure my video card allows for that. It's an nVidia GeForce 7900 GT, if anyone knows if that is compatible or not. It comes with a DVI to VGA dongle. I guess we'll find out when I get one. If not I can get a VGA box as that link your provided suggested.

    Does the cable for the 360 (console to pc monitor) come with the system? Or is it an additional cable you have to buy? If it is additional how much does it go for?

    ^ Yeah, it's an additional cable but I'm pretty sure it's only about 20$(Canadian).
