I have a Sega Dreamcast w/ the vga adapter, and games look BEYOND bad ass on it. Well I couldnt find an adapter for my PS2 to be able to plug up to a vga monitor ( because they dont make one ). I have found however, these boxes that convert RGB to VGA output, but its not digital to digital. So I sent them this email to see if they will be coming out with something that suits my needs/wants:

I just bought a Sony Playstation 2 to replace my Sega Dreamcast, but frankly, I'm kind of sad. Perhaps I am not looking hard enough, but does Sony have a VGA adapter for the PS2 so I can plug it up to a VGA monitor such as I can with the Dreamcast? The graphics look much better on the vga obviously vs the tv, I am just have a hard time finding what I want, if its even out.
Thank you for your time.
This is what I get back

Please refer to your monitor/television instruction manual to see if you can utilize these features:
The PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system does have a licensed Component AV Cable (for
PlayStation(R)2), SCPH-10100, that allows you to utilize the component inputs of a
television/monitor*. Using these same cables will allow you to use a monitor that has the ability
to accept RGB cables. You will need to enter the "system configuration" area of the "main menu" in
the PlayStation 2 console. From there, find the "Component Video" option, and set it to the
*The term "monitor" is loosely termed for TV monitor, and not a computer monitor. There are very
few television "monitors" sold in North America that have an RGB input. Most of the high-end
televisions manufactured for North America have a component video input, for which you could use a
Component AV Cable (for PlayStation 2) (SCPH-10100). RGB inputs are much more prevalent in
televisions manufactured for Japan and Europe. The reason the instruction manual mentions an RGB
input is that the instruction manual for the North American PlayStation 2 console was directly
translated from the instruction manual for the Japanese PlayStation 2 console. We do not have any
official information on how you can connect your PlayStation 2 system to your computer monitor. We
apologize for any inconvenience.
