Default F-type coaxial to VGA adapter?

Does one exist? I've been using a tuner outputting to component with an adapter, but the lag is really annoying me. I want to use my old computers on a newer monitor. I know it'd have to convert the video to get the RGB signal, but there must be something that won't give me a second or more of lag.

An atari monitor port-> VGA adapter would also work.

TIA.

Wait. Say that all again? Your old computers are outputting video with coaxial?

I'm confused.

Use a VCR as a tuner and use the composite connection with this adapter.

Thanks. Will it cause noticeable input lag?

I'll have to think about it. The other thing I've been considering is buying a new surround receiver with a HDMI out and using it to convert the video. Our Onkyo in the living room seems to do a very good job at it.
