Hi!

There are two options: the first is to get a 15kHz-compatible monitor with VGA input, see the list here:
http://15khz.wikidot.com/

The second is to acquire an RGB->HDMI converter box, like this:

And a monitor with DVI/HDMI input.
ÉN ekelek, TE keregsz, Ő gyeleg,
MI ákolunk, TI vornyáztok, ŐK lendeznek.

There is still the old option of connecting a LCD TV, that has a lot of advantages:

-It could be found very cheap on second hand shops.
-Maintains the 4/3 Enterprise video proportions.
-The Scart cable is cheap(more if you make it yourself). RGB, Composite and S-Video can be shown on it, for other devices..
-Accepts the interlace mode.
-Has its own audio amplifier, probably stereo.
-Usually it also has a VGA input, that can serve you to share the TV with your PC.
-Modern ones even have a HDMI input that can suit you with a scaler-converter.

On the other side, all solutions I see nowadays, including LCD TVs, don't let you to touch geometry, image position-width, colours, that where so popular on a time for the CRT VGA monitors. It is a shame.
