need help connecting a ps2 and possibly other consoles to vga

i have a tv, but do not care for playing games in my room, so i found out my lcd monitors give me the option to change input, currently all my monitors are connected using dvi-d so i thought since i have a vga input available that ican freely change the input to, it would be more efficient to use my monitors. problem being, i have no clue how to convert the, or where i can get an addapter that turns the red white video cables into a vga cable. any ideas. pleas not that i am planning on purchasing a 4x vga switch box so i can connect multiple consoles to one monitor so the fewer 3d party stops i can make with the cables the better!

thank you, this leads me to my next question, instead of getting a vga switcher, do you know of a product that i might be able to get at a local game stop that will let me switch from console to console that could plug into that device. it would need to have ps2 and i plan on getting an xbox360 and possibly ps3. or if u know of a better way, that would also be helpful. please and thank you...

A KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch. They're used to switch a single console setup to multiple processors--Usually servers. Don't know if a game shop would have them but they're readily available on line. Search for "KVM switch".
