    to use your pc monitor as a screen to play your console games on, you would need a tv tuner card. you connect the outgoing console cables to the tuner card, and use the tuner software to view. for a laptop, you're pretty much stuck with an external (usb/firewire) tuner card.

    To further add to that, make sure to get a tuner that supports decent resolution! When I first began, I bought a tuner card for the same reason as you. I decided to be cheap and bought a card that supported up to 640X480.....lets just say it was a waste of time.

    Bottom line, don't be cheap! If money is an issue, might as well stick to playing your system on a standard tv.
