    When I get my gamecube I will be connecting it directly to a projector via a VGA cable.

    Given that I am using this connection, will the progressive scan feature of the US games played on a US Cube produce better video quality than UK games played on a UK Cube?

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave

    In a word, yes.

    The UK Gamecube outputs in progressive scan as well provided that the software you use supports it.

    jian,

    By that do you mean if I were to play a US game in a UK Gamecube I would get the option to play in progressive scan mode?

    you will only be able to play us games on your monitor with a vga cable using us software, so why even consider a pal machine.

    Goblin games do US platinum machines for £99 and there are always us/jap machines for around £75 on the ntsc-uk forums used.

    stick with ntsc and get groundy to make you a cable if you dont want to do it yourself and your laughing mate :)
