Probably a weird question but...anyway to output a GTX 770 to an S-video CRT TV?

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.


What would using VGA do?

Unfortunately I wanna use the PS2 emulator to play Forbidden Siren 2 EU, which i've never gotten to play up until now. I will probably go that DVI>vga>svideo route.

And yea it's really nothing similar, i mean old school filters on emulators are pretty cool but look nothing like a good, crisp, CRT display does. It's just a purist type of thing. So you feel like you are playing the games on an actual 80's and 90's style setup.

Meh emulator lacks one of the best parts of retro consoles though changing the cartridges :) I love that so much and some minor and easy work with a soldering iron and you can install a battery holder so you can easily change batteries when they die :)

Even if you output to your CRT TV it won't be quite right. Those games ran in resolutions such as 240p which modern video cards can't output. The closest you will get is using a Wii since it can output 240p.

There is also a special video card you can buy called an ArcadeVGA. It was designed for hobbyists who build arcade/mame machines but it allows you to output those resolutions.

True, but I will settle for outputting at 640x480, it's close enough for me.

As far as this ArcadeVGA card, that wont be powerful enough for me to emulate the PS2 anyways right? Or is it a bridge between your main GPU just to output at proper resolutions?

Its a really specific video card for a die-hards art dream. Last I checked, it wasn't too strong

That is not going to work, you need a converter box to go from DVI or VGA to Svideo.

ArcadeVGA could probably handle PS2 emulation at native resolutions. Emulation is mostly CPU intensive and since you want to output native it shouldn't be much of a strain on the GPU. ArcadeVGA is not a bridge between GPUs, it's an entire GPU. I remember reading that ArcadeVGA should handle SSF4 @ 60fps or so.
