Default PC to TV???

I have an oldish TV with just 2 scarts and 1 video (red, white) ouput and an audio (red, yellow, white) output.

I am investing in a second hand (new to me) PC. just recieved the wireless router.

Is there any way via adaptors/connectors I can hook my TV up to my PC.

I believe there is a rca to vga converter.

Something like this: For only $1.86 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 3ft VGA to 3 RCA Component Video Cable (HD15 - 3-RCA) | VGA to 3 RCA Component Cables

Won't be in hi def, but it'll work. still need a monitor cable.

I thought the set with the yellow is both video and audio ?

Red AND Yellow is sound. You can still run off Yellow and White and have video.

Swear to me, Yellow is always the video and Red/White is the audio in normal set ups . I know you can however run any color through and get necessary output, color coded for simplicity.

So sue me. It's been awhile since I used my 13" CRT TV that had only the Yellow and White ports.

I was just saying, no offense implied.
