I'm not fully understanding what you are trying to do...
If you're using a VGA(PC monitor) to RCA (Yellow, White, Red) cable then plug the VGA end into your monitor with no speakers, and the RCA yellow end on the cable in to your RCA yellow from the N64. Then run the RCA white/red from the N64 to your external speakers.

I can make an image of this if you need me to.

The picture quality is going to be pretty poor; your going into a monitor with a crappy composite video signal.

Try and find an S-Video lead for the N64. You'll need a S-Video-VGA adapter but the picture should be much better.
