    My TV is smaller than my PC screen and also no LCD so
    it's kind of a old Hotel TV. So I want to connect my wii
    to my PC (Mac Mini) So I don't have to buy a new TV

    -What to stuff buy (USB PLZ)
    -What Software needed ??
    -Where can I buy it (with € in webshop?? or normal shop??)

    Thanks for your time

    id say a vga converter would generally have

    - higher initial cost
    + lower running cost

    - lower picture quality
    + lower lag

    compared to running it though a pc

    initial cost and picture quality are extremely product dependent

    so it's better than though a pc ??
    but those VGA converters are more expensive than a usb cable
