Thanks mate, ive just dropped Andy an email although tbh im not entirely sure I know what im explaining LOL
I think the main thing is to get the pc to show up on the monitor and then worry about the rest later.
How do you mean lo-res monitor and lo-res games? Is there only certain games I will be able to play on this setup then?? as I was hoping to install MAME or whatever AdvancedMAME is and then have loads of different games installed on it.
