Playing an xbox on a pc screen

Is this possible with just a cable, or do I need a converter? If so, which is the cheapest? I'm not particularly looking for an upgrade in quality.

I have a TFT monitor.

Thanks.

ETA: would this work?

Probably not, I suspect you'll need a DVI, not a VGA adapter. Check the plug: the VGA is 15-pin, DVI 29-pin

Then yes, that should work.
