    You should be able to purchase a good length of VGA extender cable from any computer supply store.

    That should work. You just have to ask for a VGA extension cable. They all should work. Note that VGA will not carry sound. Your TV should have a sound input associated with the VGA input. You will then have to plug a cable from your computers headphone jack to the TVs sound input.
