    How exactly do I go about doing that? Although I don't have the game yet, I heard that Dead Rising has text issues in SDTVs, and that's what I have :\ My monitor is a bit smaller than my TV screen, but it's a 17" flat screen monitor and there's a chance that it could look a little better. I also heard from several sources that sometimes, playing the game on a computer monitor would somewhat fix the problem...

    As far as I know, your computer needs to have TV outlet on it otherwise you can't use it.

    Im pretty sure theres adapters to connect a SD cable or component cables to a monitor. Just google it and see if you find anything.

    The VGA cable is the solution. The NXE introduced improved support for monitor resolutions, too. [​IMG]

    make sure you buy a high quality one otherwise you'll get a lot of ghosting. though it probably won't be too noticeable on a 17" monitor.

    Okay, I think that cable should do the trick. I'll check my local EBGames and see if they have it. Thanks for the help!

    Or if your monitor is support DVI
    you can use DVI to HDMI Converter
    for a good quality image

    I bought this from DX.

    It seems as though it is out of stock at the moment but it works fine with my wii, 360 and ps3.
