VGA Cables for Wii

Recommended Posts

I know that Nintendo don't make them :)

Only reason I am asking, is because my TV recently decided to stop working on me. I don't have the money to get a new one, so I figure I might as well just use my computer monitor which is already pretty nice.

The cheapest option I recommend is a composite to VGA or component to VGA adapter. You can pick one up at a local Radioshack. They should cost about $5

Only advice I can give regarding component to VGA is beware of the converter boxes that have thin VGA cables, as the shielding on these is typically way below VGA spec, and will distort the video output somewhat. Not really an issue for consoles since the most you'll get out of them is SD 480p anyway, but can be an issue if you're using the same monitor with VGA input from the computer.

Used to go this route for my GameCube and Wii, since I was too cheap to just buy a TV.
