I'm only replying to throw you on the line of what you might be able to get to work. I've not yet looked at the specs of your monitor or researched the link to the cheap converter there will be hundreds of products like this and I've a feeling only the expensive converter box ones will work consistently or with quality at that point though you may as well just buy a new 1920x1080 monitor with hdmi

having looked at the monitor specs now. Buy a new monitor that does 1920x1080

I'm hoping the above is a good one for that price as I've sort of recommended it to 2 people. They've not bought them yet if anyone wants to say something about the monitor eg why I should dissuade them.

Whichever monitor you can find with a native 1920x1080 panel in check some reviews for ghosting / lag / speaker quality if important to you. IPS panels have good viewing angles but you might not like ms response times. TN panels are normally faster response times at cheap levels but view angel may not be to your liking for example if you use gaming chair low down to monitor.

I liked your comment accidentally whilst trying to reply so ignore

looked quickly at the acer and it appears that you'll need to go hdmi to dvi

VGA does not transfer sound, only video. Therefore you will have to connect the PS4 to a sound source either via optical or AV cable.

Sell whatever you have that is vga and buy a used equivalent that is HDMI for similar money if cash is currently an issue :)
