Hi, I have just received my Raspberry Pi, but not yet in a position to use it as I have some display issues. I'm not particularly tech savvy, but can usually find my way around problems by Googling and the like, anyhow I would just like some advice on how I can get up and running in the most cost effective way.
The problem - I own a Dell monitor that uses a VGA input. Through reading up on the subject I am aware that using a series of HDMI to DVI to VGA adaptors will not work, and I am also aware that using some form of Composite to VGA adaptor will not work either unless it a powered signal converter.
Might this be what I am looking for?

I would rather be sure than diving in to a purchase. Either way, I am reluctant to have to go out an buy a TV or monitor with a composite/HDMI/DVI input. We do have a TV with composite/scart sockets in the house, though its just not practical setting up the RPI in our lounge!
