    Default Dumb Question...

    Ok, here's the dilemma. I have an extra monitor, but not a TV, and a Gamecube.

    I was wondering, is there any kind of adaptor I can use to hook up the Gamecube to a monitor? I have looked, but as of yet have been unable to find such a thing, but it seems like something of the sort should be out there. Does such an animal exist?

    what you want to find is a female VGA/DVI to female RCA.

    I'm not sure if the quality of the video will be good enough with this method, but here you go

    check the second to last item, and you still need the female to female RCA thou.

    but many people use this option instead.
    tv tunerwith RCA video input, so that means you need a computer for the card.

    or you can set up a dual screen/monitor (not cloning) and play the gamecube on the secondary monitor.

    Awhile ago I saw a device that would do just what you are asking. Although I'm not sure it would connect with a gamecube.

    another thought to consider is you may want to get an adapter like flash suggested with an s-video or component inputs instead of your standard RCA video, and the proper cables for the gamecube if you need them. Could dramaticly improve the picture on your monitor when you get it working. Monitors have much better resolution than TVs, so take what you can get if the price is right and up the quality as much as possible to make up for it.
