:O Would that work to get the PS3 connected onto a computer monitor then? i.e, I't dnotice a resolution change and set accordingly?
I know the Xbox 360 has VGA support and I use that, but I didn't think the PS3 could use the same type of interface and still work correctly.

For instance, how will you now get sound if the DVI cable won't carry it?
