PS2 with RGB to euroscart

I want to buy a PS2,but I will connect it to my old SDTV because it would look ugly on HD.On the SDTV however,you can only connect one cable that will carry audio and video(RC I think?) so it would look really ugly.
Therefore,I want to buy an RGB cable and connect it to my TV thru euroscart(I know that two are for audio,but I'm talking about the video ones).
What i don't know however,is if I need a special RGB cable for PS2 or if any will work,and what do I need to connect the RGB cable on euroscart(i know it can't work directly).
Some prices will help too.

Why not just get a PS2 scart cable such as This

Just for clarification – a SCART cable can carry Composite Video or RGB Video (with Composite Sync) plus Stereo audio.

To make use of the RGB (with Composite Sync) signal you require your Source plus Display (TV) to be SCART RGB enabled (and usually need to manually set both to send and look for RGB).

RGB (with Composite Sync) is usually far better looking than plain Composite video.

So if I buy one that Mark showed,and plug it in,it wont work without modifications?For a while I had a receiver connected to it,and the image was crystal clear.

As long as you plug the lead I linked to into an RGB enabled scart socket (on most CRT TV's only 1 scart is often capable of RGB) then you should get the best possible PQ.
