PS2 on a Comp. Monitor?

by freakwithahat / April 11, 2006 2:52 PM PDT

Is there a cheap (sub $50) way to be able to hook up my PS2 to my Dell E153FPT (cheap monitor, i know, i know). I know my Graphics Card (ATI Radeon X300SE 128 MB) on my PC doesn't have a Composite output so I'm looking for a VGA to Composite box, USB device, anything really that would allow me to hook up my PS2 (maybe PS3 come November) to my Monitor. Thanks.

1. An ATI or Hauppauge PCI TV/Capture card. Under 50.
2. Viewsonic N4 NextVision Video Processor (doesn't require a PC)

I will not tell where to get these. Try google.com

Sorry, but it's a commodity item for the TV/Capture card. With both ATI and Hauppaugge delivering the same picture quality either would do.
