Hey guys, I just bought a dreamcast with 2 controllers and a VMU on eBay for 23 dollars (!) and I am going to try and hook it up to my computer monitor instead of my TV. Here is my monitor http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82e16824009145 and I'm not exactly sure what I need to do this. I hear that VGA and DVI and RCA are all different types of signal or something? I don't really know and it's all pretty confusing, even though I know quite a bit about computers.
All I want to do is to be able to play my (systems listed above) on my monitor. I don't want them all hooked up at the same time, just the ability to use my monitor with all of them if I want.
Most PC moniters lack RCA inputs, but RCA->VGA converters are quite common. As for sound, you need to get a RCA->3.5mm mini converter [also quite common], and plug the output to your PC's Line In jack [usually Blue, but sometimes combined with the pink Mic In jack]
