Monitor problem

What is the most cost effective way to
adapt my 20"rgb monitor to run off my
vga card?
The monitor has 3 bnc sockets
(Not the usuall 4, or 5)
Also, the Hor. sync is noted as being
on the RED input, and the Vert. sync
is noted to be on the BLUE input.
Apparently, its normal to use a sync-
combiner/splitter to put on the GREEN
input?, But not this baby !!!
Any positive guidance will be appreciated.
NB. I am an electrical engineer, so a technical answer will be ok.
Except monitors are my limit !

Two possibilities:

1) Get a fixed scan video board.  There are a number of them on the market.

2) Make/buy a converter and live without the boot time MSDOS screens.  When Windows comes up in the right video mode, you will see an image.
