Using a pc monitor as TV options?

Is there a way to use a regular pc monitor as a TV screen? I am not talking about using a Tuner card on the pc to view the TV on the pc. I would like to connect the pc monitor to the cable box/receiver or to something in between. So what options do I have here?

All you have to do buy a $40 Capture Card install it in your PC and use your PC & Monitor as TV by connecting your cable TV or Antenna cable to back of your installed Capture Card.
