VGA boot CD

utopia 1.1 and better will give you the no signal screen (not the "wrong AV cable" message, but your monitor won;t get signal from dc). from that screen, simply insert any non-boot games, and it should work perfectly fine. even the version that;s supposedly not compatable with vga, you can get it to work too, using the little switch trick.
Or you could get a DC-X which boots in vga and lets you play imports (I use it for rez, headhunter, etc) I think they're still available at EB.
