Hello everyone. I'm having a little difficulty trying to figure out what product I would need to get for hooking up my game systems to my Moniter. To make things clear I am not hooking it to my video card, but just monitor(just using it like a TV). What do I need to do to be able to do this? So far I was considering of getting this

Since it seems like this is what I needed, but It keeps referring to A Videocard so I'm kinda of unsure.

Also the monitor I'm using has an Audio Output & Speakers and I already have the cable to make that work just need some kind of VGA adapter for Systems.

Thanks!

I tried one of those adapter things with a Wii, and it didn't work. I have an official Xbox 360 VGA cable, though so that works fine.

If you get it for the Xbox I recommend the Microsoft made one, I had the Intec (I think) one long ago and it didn't have hardly any resolutions and it ghosted a lot! The Microsoft one however supports every resolution on my screen and doesn't ghost, is crystal clear.

Would it also work for my Wii? The Microsoft made one? Also plan on hooking my Dreamcast to it as well.

How do you plan to solve the lack of speakers on your monitor? There's no line-out audio on the XBox 360 or Wii. You'd have to do something with the component out on the Wii, and I don't think you can use both HDMI and component out on the XBox.
