    I have a 21" Industrial monitor (Don't Ask) which has 2 standard PC input sockets on the rear, and a handy little switch on the front to toggle between the inputs. What I would like to do is plug my PS2 into the 2nd socket (PC is in the 1st socket), thus allowing me to use the monitor for my console gaming.
    Does anyone know of a company that sells the required socket adapter to allow me to do this? Just a normal female 3 pin to (whatever the standard sockets are called ) socket.
    Or am I barking up completly the wrong tree and should invest in a card for my PC to enable me to play the PS2 that way? God I hope not.

    ANyhow, thanks for any info you guys can give me. :suicide:

    If you have a standard VGA input on your monitor and you want
    to hook up your PS2 then I would buy a TV-in card on your PC
    and run descaler. It gives excellent results using S-Video.
    Alternativly, but a TV Tuner box like the PRO-V which does
    a similary job, but not as good IMO.
