So, right now I have my pc and my video game console area separate. However, I’d like to run fighting game emulators on my big screen where my video game consoles are. I have an older pc with a 9800 Pro with DVI and VGA out. My television across the room has vga, hdmi, and component in. Now, in theory, I could just run vga straight to the television, right? But my Xbox 360 currently occupies the VGA input. And, my pc monitor is currently using the vga output on the pc.
So, if the 9800 pro puts out a picture via VGA and DVI at the same time (as I read that it does) and I use a DVI to VGA dongle, now I have solved my problem of getting video out of the pc, right? How about my input problem of the television? Do they make a KVM-style device that just switches between VGA and audio only?
Does this make any sense? This all just came to me since I ordered a fighting stick for the 360 that happens to be XP compatible. I’d love to play Street Fighter, King of Fighters, etc. on the big screen.
