    I have a PC with no monitor that I'd like to use for gaming (NBA LIVE 2004 baby!) but don't want to buy a monitor. My main computer is my apple Powerbook. I found out about microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection software that I can use with my mac, but I wonder if it's possible to actually run games with the software. I would have the computers networked with a router. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    No chance! The video update rate would be hopelessly slow for games.

    With 17" monitors going for $70-80 on rebate deals, just bite the bullet and buy a monitor. :)
