S-Video > VGA Adapter

So I have no clue if this is the right spot for this question, if not feel free to move it.

Basically I am looking for an adapter I can use to plug an S-Video cable into a PC monitor via the VGA port. (Or if there's a cheap PCI/PCI-E card that would accept an S-Video input, and then I could just display it over the PC that would work as well)

I found this on amazon (as well as on various other sites), and the connectors appear correct in terms of male/female ends, but the reviews and statements on the product make me unsure as to if it will actually do what I want. Can anyone state for sure, or point me to another device/adapter that would work for this?

The intended use is to hook up an old video game console, so TV tuner type devices don't work well for this even if they have the input because they introduce a significant delay into the video feed.

Cheaper solutions are better.

Thx. :)

So, you want to go from S-Video from your graphics card to VGA to your monitor, correct? If so, the cable you found should work fine. Keep in mind though that S-Video doesn't have the best quality.

I have an old video game console with S-Video out that I want to connect to my monitor. (Gamecube)
