Don't get your hopes up.
The PS2 is designed to run off a TV. It outputs at normal TV resolutions which is roughly 640x480. 640x480 when stretched to fill your monitor is not going to look great, particularly if you're using an LCD monitor. LCDs look best when the video resolution matches the monitor's resolution -- one pixel in the video matches up with one pixel on the monitor. If the resolutions don't match, pixels need to get duplicated to fill the screen which will either make the picture look really blocky or really soft/blurry depending on how the monitor chooses to scale the picture. Most LCD monitors have native resolutions like 1280x1024.,
On top of that, the analog s-video output of the PS2 is no where near as sharp or as clean as a VGA signal. Your ultra sharp computer monitor is just going to emphasise the flaws in the s-video signal. The de-interlacing necessary to convert the interlaced output of the PS2 to the progressive scan format of your monitor may also introduce flaws in the picture.,
In otherwords, if you want to use your computer monitor because that's all you have or you want to save space... it may be a good idea. If you're trying to do this to improve the picture quality, or hoping that it will look like a PC computer game... don't waste your time.
