    what do I need ... just the wi fi adapter ?


    and how much do games cost?

    I feel I should get around to this but before I spend the money on all the accesories.

    Am I really missing out? ... I can play roms on my ps2.

    Yes you are if you are thinking of playing N64 games.
    Its ok i guess some of the games are good personally i go only for the N64 games.
    Yes you need a wi-fi adapter or a router but the nintendo wi-fi adapter is easy to setup no setup required just software instalation but your pc must be XP it cant be windows 9x series or any vista only XP.

    I love the virtual console... sometimes.

    As of late some of the VC releases have been a bit lame. the games in the US range from $5 (NES) to $10(N64) depending on the console that the game was for originally.

    I got 3 2000 point cards for my birthday and still have points left over. I'm waiting for the really good games to come out for it. I already have a GC version of TLoZ:OoT but if you don't you should pick it up for the Wii via VC.

    If you don't have the Wi-Fi adapter and don't want to go through that there is always the Datel LAN USB adapter to connect it to a wired network.

    The VC is one of the many great features for the Wii. even if you just get one game.

    I think I could hold off a bit longer .,.. 10 dollars a game and all the accesories I would need puts me off the idea a bit.

    Thanks for the help guys

    No.
    Wii will never outrun a PC in Media neither will any other console out.
    I dont like the idea of using a 128cm screen as a monitor so i stuck to my 21"inch LCD monitor but i do have a Dual monitor supporting DVI X1900XTX so the other DVi is pluges into a 68cm LCD TV in my room not in lounge though.

    being able to save pictures is a bit of a stretch from outrunning a PC,

    if you dont like the idea of using a 42" screen use your imagination some more. its great, but not all the time since I have to keep a slideshow or screen saver going to prevent burn in. this means that I dont use the comp on the TV all the time, if I could save pictures on the wii I could have the screen saver even when my comp was not hooked up.

    I put together a shit load of these desktops,there great too look at when a bunch of people are over, like a larger version of those picture frames that rotate pics. A digital painitng if you will
