If you want a monitor to double as a TV you'll need a tv tuner in the PC.

I refuse to recommend any TV brand that could meet the $250 limit on a 19" TV.

So something like this: - KWORLD PlusTV Analog Lite PCI TV Tuner Capture Card w/ Remote PVR-TV 7134SE PCI Interface - TV Tuners & Video Devices

And maybe: - ViewSonic X Series VX2262wm Black 22" 5ms, 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 20000:1(1000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Then you'll need an adapter for the PS2 because it only has composite cables if I remember correctly... not sure what's out there for that.
