    I don't have a TV in my room and was wanting to hook up my Dreamcast to my monitor. Any recommendations on a VGA box? If possible I'd love to have one with more than one set of inputs so I could hook up the SNES as well.

    I'd recommend simply scouring ebay for a Dreamcast VGA cable, but since you're looking for multiple inputs...

    Neoya X2VGA 2 Home

    That's the box I have, I'd used it to run my original Xbox and then Xbox 360 in HD before getting my new TV. Its pretty quality and if you're really looking to game on your monitor, its worth the price.

    However, it, like most VGA boxes I've seen is component only -- so hooking up the SNES isn't gonna happen.

    oh I actually use a dreamcast vga converter box so I can play it on a computer monitor. Otherwise I think you just want the multiple input box.

    Just a spare computer monitor and your dreamcast never has to use the tv. A cheap cathode ray monitor works great.


    My vga converter box is by naki they had orange and blue versions back when they sold them at eb games.

    If you do manage to get VGA on the go through whatever means on the Dreamcast, I can't recommend enough that you make a point to play either Soul Calibur, Guilty Gear X, or Capcom vs SNK 2 first. They look especially awesome through VGA.
