Can I connect my C64 to a VGA monitor?

Is that even a possibility? I am running out of space and It would be great If I could connect my C64 to my Sony VGA monitor.

Not directly, but there are plenty of video scalers that can take a NTSC or PAL video signal and convert it to a VGA signal.

I recommend a ViewSonic unit like a N4 or the older VB50HRTV.

But what model monitor is this?

That seems like a nice Trinitron monitor. It should work nicely with a ViewSonic unit.
