    Dear guys,

    I have a question about the Wii since I'm thinking about purchasing one. I would like to put the Wii on my own chamber, Since I don't have a TV there but I do have a pretty large monitor I would like to connect it too. The problem is I don't think I can connect the Wii to my monitor whitout an external device. So I was wondering If there is a device I can use to connect the Wii to my PC.

    My Monitor supports VGA and HDMI (currently in use by the PC) so I rather have a VGA solution.



    Thanks in advance

    there are some third party wii hdmi cables, but I've heard their quality is pretty bad. best bet would probably be to just get something with component inputs.

    edit: heres something I found... no idea on quality, but there it is:

    Thanks! Although it is a bit expensive. I'm thinking about maybe buying a tv after all... one way or another, it's going to be quite expensive.
