Cool Gamecube Questions... Yeah I know its outdated

Hey everyone! So I get bored in college sometimes during classes and I love the game Super Smash Bros. Melee, it entertains me for hours. So I was given the game disc for free, two free wavebirds. So I feel like I might as well spend the 50$ on a gamecube

Only question is how I connect it to my computer since I have no TV-- My graphics card is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143104

I also have one of these:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16815116009

Is there something that will connect the GC to my pc?

Thanks!

use S-Video to connect it to one of ur Tuner Cards then use the RCA to connect the audio to the tuner cards.

You could always get a composite to VGA converter/adapter to connect it directly to your monitor.


Edit -
_-..zKiLLA..-_ has the right idea. I forgot they had a S-VIDEO cable for the Gamecube: GameCube S-Video / AV Cable.

That cable I linked to plugs right in to a standard Gamecube output.

Erm, you could use the audio out wires and use a converter that will convert both wires to a PC jack and you could plug it in your Line-In, or MIC if you want to record.

Your TV tuner card has left/right sound inputs. They are the red and white RCA plugs on the card.
