Hooking a pc monitor to a wireless receiver

HI I'm trying to put a surveillance system in my home, and I'd like to use the wireless system that i have. I have an extra pc monitor I want to use for the camera monitoring. What i need to know is how do i hook up the monitor to the wireless receiver? Someone said i can get some sort of a converter box for this. I know nothing about electronics, so I'm out on a limb. I have looked, but there are so many ones i wouldn't know one from the other. Thanks in advance.

You need to know the video format of the cameras. Some could be viewed on most new monitors. They are able to switch from TV to PC formats. If not then you'd need a converter. That also assume you are getting some sort of video common video in a standard plug.

What is the reason you don't already have a way to view this image?

Hi, thanks for the reply. Maybe i didn't explain myself enough. The wireless system i have works and i did have image. I was using a 21" tv as a monitor, but it was to large for my desk. So i removed it and since then i have had no monitor. Now the monitor i want is *not* hooked to a pc. It's a extra monitor i had, so instead of buying a new one, i thought I would try to use the 17" pc monitor. I will be using a vga cable from the monitor to the converter box, and then video cable from the cameras to the converter box, but I'm not sure that will work, but wanted to find out before i buy one.
