I haven't used this myself, and I'm sure it's not as good as a DC VGA box, but it may be what you're looking for.

the PS2 cannot output anything better than 15khz RGB.  Computer monitors usually start at 31.5khz (VGA).  So the only way to display a PS2 on your computer monitor would be to buy an "upscan converter".  Some cheap ones are available (like the one mentioned above)...but the quality is pretty crappy.

The one advantage is the high definition TV is closer to VGA resolutions then the standards...

so look for a hdtv -> VGA since (I believe) the PS2 can output HDTV resolutions... I don't think PS can thought...

I saw a PS2 hooked up at the mall ro a LCD computer screen and the quality was awesome. They were both hooked up to some box about half the side of the playstation. I don't know what type of box it was but I just know that its possible  :D

The demo PS2 units in stores (with the LCD monitor) is actually not VGA, but regular ntsc video.  The picture is actually quite blurry in my opinion.

The PS2 does have a component connector, but its just so you can play in 480i (15khz).  The only upside to using the component cable is its sharper than svideo.

As of right now there are no PS2 games which support resolutions above 480i.  The rumor is Tekken4 will support 480p, but that is pushing it as the PS2 hardware can't buffer than much video info.
