Default Monotor to TV

I have two 2333T 23" Widescreen LCD Samsung Monitors that have a VGA and a DVI port on both of them. I want to make it so that I can watch TV or hook it up to a standard DVD player via RCA connection (like use the yellow, red, white cable). I looked online and saw some simple VGA to RCA cables (it had the yellow RCA cable and a VGA on the ends). This cost about $10.

Basically, can I use a simple cord to make my monitor into a TV?

I know that I can do this if I buy a fancy TV tuner box, but I think I can do it this way. If it comes down to it, I can use my computer and graphics card. I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 that has 2 DVI ports. (But I would like to avoid that if possible...)

Thanks for any help!!

Technically, it's ok.
There are a lot of monitors can display TV, also a lot of TV can be use as computer monitors, includes skyworth, TCL, etc. Just try.
