I'm in the beginning stages of making a stand-up arcade-style cabinet for gaming. Since my 50" DLP sucks for fighting games (damn you, DNIe), the cabinet will most likely just be a ps2 and a PC hooked up to my yet-to-be-built contraption. I'm thinking a regular PC LCD monitor would be my best bet in terms of size/quality/price since I refuse to use a CRT...not only for space considerations, but general hatred of CRT's. I thought about a standard def LCD TV as well, but it seems like a waste, all things considered...since I don't know if a standard def LCD TV might have a frame of lag or two. Should a SD LCDTV be completely lagless from both 480p and 480i sources, as well as hooked up from a computer?
Also, if I go with a PC display (cheaper option...since i have a spare), what are my options of connecting a PS2 to a PC display? XRGB 2/3 seems like overkill, since I would think there would be a much simpler component/composite -> VGA converter that would have 0 frames of lag. This would be a nice solution, as I'd be able to plug my PS2 into my existing PC LCD display and still practice before I get the rig built.
If I go with an LCD TV, I haven't seen many (if any) with VGA inputs, so would I have to have TV out from the PC, or is there a lagless converter somewhere?
So basically, there's the long and the short of it. The entire purpose of this rig is -0- lag. Absolutely none. Any recommendations or help would be great. Thanks, guys. =)
