RGB-VGA Converter -- buy or build?

I have a video card that outputs RGB, but I have no RGB monitor... Not
knowing anything about video standards, I ask the following :-)

- How hard would it be to build an RGB-to-VGA converter to use my computer's
VGA monitor (well, actually capable of 1024x768 non-interlaced)? Does
anyone have schematics, or documentation to guide me along?

- Would it be easier to convert RGB to composite video? I have several
devices that can take composite input....

- Has anyone bought a reasonably cheap (sub-$100 US) RGB-to-VGA converter
unit, and been happy with it? If so, where did you get it from?

P.S. I subscribe to the digest, so I cannot reply directly....
