    Hello guys back again with another question (surprise surprise huh). Well this time i'm wondering if there's an way i could hook up my older consoles (NES,Snes,Genesis,Saturn ect...) to my PC monitor and before you say use emulators or usb controllers i already do that but am just wanting to use the original consoles again :D

    My monitor is

    Use a composite to HDMI converter. I personally have this thing and it does the job.
    Just note that, regardless of what converter you use, classic consoles will generally look like shit on LCD.

    I would recommend investing in a television that will scale to 4:3. You can find them for fairly low prices in the 720p variety.
