Well.... this was a rather hard decision on where to post this thread.... since it could be linked in some way to at least 2 or 3 other topics too. As you may or may not know.... i recently purchased a Gateway FPD2185W Widescreen HD LCD monitor. earlier today..... got bored after getting home from work, and started messin with stuff. hooked my Gamecube up to the monitor, and started to play it a bit. My question is...... what would i have to change, be it on the monitor, or on the console, so that the picture won't look so crappy? i know consoles are usually meant for regular TV's (really low resolution.... not 1680x1050), but i know that people have more than likely done this and had good quality. could it just be because it's also a High Definition Widescreen? didn't look like it stretched the size at all..... didn't really look at that. The way i had it connected..... had the GC connected to the monitor with the s-video cable (wish i had the component video adapter for it.... but with Revolution a moderately short ways away.... don't see a point to paying close to $50 for it), and used a male-to-male RCA wire, with an RCA-to-headphone plug (forget the name of the actual plug) and plugged that into the line-in jack on my Audigy 2 ZS.
