Can I modify a stand up arcade to accept different input? Answered

I'm looking into building a custom arcade system.  I have decided that to save time and frustration that I will be retrofitting an actual arcade and was wondering if there was any way to output RCA (Red, Yellow, White) cables to the monitor or even vga.  I was thinking that this could be done by adapting the video output on a game board but was wondering if anybody's done this before.

A lot depends on which game you start with.  Some of the newer ones actually have vga connections already since they are just color monitors in a wooden cabinet.  And then computer components to run the game. 

Others could be adapted but how would depend on exactly what you have and what you want to adapt it to.
