Cheap but good 60fps S-Video capture card to run PS2 to PC?

Anyone know a cheap but good 60fps s-video capture card that I can use to run my PS2 into PC so that I can play the PS2 on my PC monitor?

I have the S-Video output cable for the PS2, I want to play on my computer monitor and a capture card seems better than buying a S-Video to DVI converter box.


I saw some on newegg, but they only operate at 30fps. The PS2's native frame rate is 60fps, so I need a capture card that operates at or above that rate.

I'm a bit confused as to what resolution my PS2 displays at, supposedly it is variable and I don't know how to check what mine is currently displaying, or how to turn it up if possible.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

You should just hook it up directly to your motherboard. Elmer's Glue + PS2 tv cable directly on the processor. I run mine at 120+ FPS with vsync off.

While i'm at it, maybe i can increase my hard drive by hitting it with a golf club.

Seriously, does anyone know if they make capture cards under say $50 that can operate @ 60fps?

I tried hooking my PS2 up to my capture card before. The result was terribly low resolution, plus bad ghosting and image quality. This was using S-Video. If you use a CRT monitor it might be OK depending on what capture card you use. I wouldn't bother on an LCD as the lower resolution looks terrible.
