    1) Don't get a composite screen. You'll be unhappy with the display.
    2) Read this: FAQ: VGA vs. Composite (Video) Screens
    3) Check out the FAQ Emporium forum. Read a lot and learn even more.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    why do people keep buying these composite screens?..

    of course people buy HD tvs and think they'll be able to watch dvds and play video games in HD now too!..

    Well...
    You can get an HD video adapter for the XBox...
    And there's always progressive-scan DVD players...

    And i have to tell you. I just bought an HDTV, and upgraded my cable service to receive HD channels...
    Holy **** is that cool....
    Watched the NASCAR race from Charlotte in HiDef and that was truly amazing. on pitstops you can actually see lugnuts flying as they are removed and dust blowing around the upper portions of the track as the cars roll by....

    Knock yourself out.
    But why do something half-assed if you know you're not going to be happy with the result? I don't understand that rationale.

    You're better off paying for a VGA now, rather than Composite now then not being happy and having to buy a VGA after.
