    You can't at the moment, there aren't any cables designed for the job. Sorry.

    Unless the monitor comes with connections (a fair few do nowadays) you will need something to convert it, they are not as good as a TV but I used one for months last year on my cube and xbox.
    I suggest you go hunting though as things have changed in the year since I got mine, here is a good starting point though:

    Actually it depends on the type of monitor you have. Some monitors, mostely widescreen, have composite in's, component in's, or s-video in's. If your monitor only has a vga out, it is possible to purchase a pass through adapter box that converts it to composite or component; this is what projectors use. They are a little pricy and tricky to find but it is possible (try NewEgg); although I'm not sure how that would affect the Wii in terms of gameplay. Unless you are just wanting to use the monitor for the hi-def component aspect, I'd just stick with a normal tv.

    You can get a component cable + component to vga box but that would set you back about £45

    Or just get a TV card with inputs for your computer. That's how I used to play my ps2.
