Just use the composite cables the Nintendo 64 comes with, 99% of TVs still have at least 1 composite input. It'll be 4:3 480i but that's the way it's always been, if you try and stretch it then it will just look worse.

The graphics looked good a long time ago when we were all playing the games on 27" CRTs but blown up to 42" + they look awful, it's the same thing with DVDs.

N64 games look terrible on a large, modern square-pixeled flat-screen TVs. You'll need the shading and filters that are on emulators to smooth out the image.
APU what?

Thread Starter 
This thread died a few days ago, but I'm just letting everyone know that I've decided to go for the emulator! tongue.gif I was just playing Mario Kart with AA and AF and it looks amazing. I might pick up one of those N64 controller adapters like people before suggested.

I was looking around on ebay and it's just too expensive for me at the moment to get one. Even if I can get the console and all the games I want (which there are a lot of) for 200 bucks, it's still too much. I'm a student and I can't dish out that much money on one thing for the sake of nostalgia.

I sold my n64 long time ago so instead I play n64 through wii's virtual console
looks fine to me @ 480p
atleast with nintendo's built in emulation the textures do look better but not everything and each game is different
anything with text looks just as bad as ever
