Actually, you'd be surprised how many monitors/TVs actually support 50Hz/30kHz on the VGA input. Not all of course, so if you want to be sure your monitor will work, a short test is needed, or google for your manufacturer/model, there might be someone with the same one.

Samsungs usually work, Dells too (some even support 15kHz mode!), LG monitor TVs work great, I have bad experiences with HP (semi-pro) monitors.

EDIT: fixed explanation

You need to buy or make the appropriate cable, but it works very well.

I connect my Mist via SCART and can use all the cores I mentioned in my previous post. There are some that I'd still be interested in trying, but at the moment can't because the scan doubler can't be disabled (The Amstrad core, for one).
Ok, thanks again for the info I guess, MiST woulkd make one helluva retrogaming system.
