Ok, I have a problem. I got an ATI TV Wonder Pro, and I hooked up my PS2 to it. It was very, very laggy. I returned it back to the store. They told me that I should buy a media center monitor that's 450 dollars. I told them, "No, that's too much money." I can spend about 100.00. Is there any way I can hook up my PS2 to the computer without it lagging? I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me out. I also have a sound card (Creative 7.1, but i cant remember the name). It has a line in, and I want to be able to hear my PS2 games out of those speakers.

Thanks

I returned my TV Tuner back to Best Buy and bought a 20 inch TV for 99.99. It's a lot better. The only thing I want to do now is hook up my computer speakers to my TV. On my TV, I have a headphones jack. The computer is about 6-8 feet from my TV. The speakers will be hooked up to the computer and the TV at the same time. Would I just need to buy an audio cable thing? Like..would it work if I plugged one audio cable into the Headphones jack of the TV and the other end into the Line in on my computer's sound card?

No all you have to do is get a cable that has two RCA female jacks on one end and a headphone plug on the other. This cable must be long enough to reach from whereever you are plugging the video into your TV to the back of your case. Plug the red and white RCA plugs from the s video PS2 cable into the purchases cable RCA jacks and then plug the head phone jack into the line in. Select the audio input to be from the line in and you should be able to hear the PS2 through the computer speakers
