I suggest getting a newer TV with HDMI lol.

Your best option would be something like this.
6ft VGA to 3 RCA Component Video Cable (HD15 - 3-RCA) -

And if you want audio through the TV, don't forget to pick up a 3.5mm to RCA (phono plug) audio cable as well. Then you can go out from your computer's speaker output to the Red/White audio IN's on your TV.
