Here's another site which also has the RJ45-RCA thing (which I'm building up now), but I found an interesting VGA-RJ45 conversion among others...

there are lots of things that will run over cat5/5e/6 that will blow your mind.
there are 4 pairs that you can utilize to your hearts content. so if your gonna run a cable in your house for any reason or any type of cable....always...ALWAYS....run a couple of CAT cables. trust me, you will use them....
it comes down to the twists in the pairs, how many twists per inch, how the entire cable twists inside the jacket and the cable type. if you have the option, always use the highest rated cable ( yes there is cat7, it runs at 10gb }. why you might ask? the amount of clean signal that can pass at 328 feet. if you use cat3 because it was 4 bucks for a 1000 foot box, dont be upset when it doesnt perform as expected. buy the good stuff and it will pay off.
my recommendation, pull in 2 cat6 cables with everything else you might want to run. just roll up an extra 4 feet at the terminated end of your run. this way, if you decide to utilize the extra cables, you have the length you need.
