> Yes the [c]ard and the lcd tv both have male ends??
you would need male ends on the ends of each side of the vga cable yea
some advice for you is, there is a lot to making a mame cab or cocktail table from the initial planning stages to the construction/assembling etc, and the various hardware/software setup and challenges along the way... but dont let the project overwhelm you. when i built a mame cocktail table many years ago i had a lot of fun with it. i certainly made my mistakes along the way and looking back there were things i could have done better, but it was a learning experience and an adventure
so my advice is try to plan and prepare everything before you proceed with buying parts and building/setting up.. but if you cant do that, just get stuck in, take it a step at a time, use the internet for help and learning etc
