so, i wanna play my ps2, but i wanna hook it up to my pc. better monitor vs tv and better sound. i don't have a receiver and don't plan on buying one. i have 5.1 surround sound with a creative sound card. now, i'm guessing imma have to use the optical out on the ps2 and run an optical cable to the optical in on the sound card. then the video cables from the ps2 to my monitor. will this work? also, will the gameplay be as fluent as it would be going directly to the tv?
i haven't tried to do anything and have googled this and have found mixed answers. i do not have the optical in sound card atm either. that will be sumthing i will have to buy. my current sound card does not have the option. be4 i spend any cash i'm just inquirering if this will indeed be good and work.
