Once again I am reaching out to the vast army of technology buffs here on the board...

I am in need of connecting a PlayStation 2 to my rather basic LCD computer monitor (15-pin standard VGA connector only).

I need the following criteria met:

Inexpensive (of course) - I don't need any fancy, merely reliable

Direct to monitor - If at all possible, I would like to avoid cracking open my tower and putting in yet another card (not even sure I have space anyway)

And that's it!

Any ideas? :)

You need a VGA box (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_box).

Nope, sorry. His PS2 doesn't have a component output, only composite.

Can't recommend a specific model as the only ones I use are industrial ones, but this one has all the things you require. If you can find something similar with an actual recognisable brand name you trust so much the better.
