    Looking for a combo now. This will be for use in my bedroom for my computer and my PS2. I do some gaming, but I don't think the 'slowness' of an LCD won't matter much to me (unless you guys tell me otherwise). For a 17", how much should I be looking to spend? I dont even know where to look. Did a search on eBay, and it's pretty expensive.

    You guys have any leads? :)

    It does tend to be pretty expensive, you might look at getting a TV card and a decent LCD monitor and going through your computer for your PS2.

    Ah, right, so one thing you can do is get a VGA out for your PS2, I don't know much about where to get that, but I'm sure you can find at least the model #, etc. on Sony's site... (Maybe MadCatz too, or however you spell that company). The other thing I was saying is a TV card, in the past I've used a few from Hauppauge (http://www.hauppauge.com), but there are many other options out there. Are you building a computer? If so, you could consider the All-in-wonder video cards from ATI, those tend to be good too.

    It's not that you need a new computer, yours is fine, I was just asking because, the ATI all-in-wonder cards are an actual video card, not just a tv card, so unless you want to replace your video card it's probably not an option (or maybe you could get a pci one and do dual monitors... haha).
