I recently purchased a 23" Acer widescreen 1080P monitor at a Black Friday sale, and I love this new monitor. It's twice as big as my old one and it is really nice. Anyway, I've heard stories of people hooking up video game systems (in my case a Playstation 2 would be what I would like to hook up) to their monitors. My neighbor a few houses down has his 360 hooked up to his aging CRT type monitor. I don't know the exact details but i've looked up a lot of information on how to do so, and it's all very confusing. First, i'd like to point out that that in addition to the standard VGA cable to plug into my desktop tower, it also features a DVI-D jack. As I mentioned above I would like to start hooking up my Playstation 2 to my monitor and playing on the widescreen. I know it can be done and it has been done, I just would like to know a simple way to start doing it, and if possible, items I could purchase at my local Best Buy so that I could play my Playstation on my monitor again. Any and all opinions/tips to accomplish this are welcomed. I am 17 years old and I have about 50 games for my Playstation 2, most of which I have owned since my childhood. I would like to fully enjoy these games more often, so please help!

Its one thing to hookup an XBOX 360 to a CRT monitor through the VGA Cable but the Sony does not offer this type of connection for PS2.
You would need something called a VGA Box which allows you to connect analog cable and a/v inputs to your monitor. I don't know if Best Buy sells them or not, but I'm also not allowed to publicly link to other sites selling items as its prohibited in the terms of service.
