The only reason I ask is because I would like to use my PC once and awhile for emulation type stuff and give it that authentic look like classic CRT TV playing (4:3, and that style of pixel density)

Since 770s only have hdmi or DVI, any adapters that can convert that over to S-video? Crazy I know. But i hate how 4:3 content looks on a widescreen display.

I dunno if you're still able to find them this easily, but I had a vga - s-video converter I found at radio shack for 15 bucks.

I guess i would need something like this, whew, kinda pricey though.

Oh hmm, i wonder if there's any advantage to it being in a actual box, maybe not. That's a good price though. Just wanna play classic games how they were meant to be played, on an old school CRT, kinda a purist when it comes to that.

Yeah, I concur its nothing similar.

But do you have integrated graphics with VGA? I'd just turn that on and use that. It should work for everything minus Dreamcast and maybe PS2.
