Hello Pierce.

You did not specify your specific Mac Mini model. Anyways, assuming you have the latest Mac Mini you have a choice of either using the HDMI or the Thunderbolt port.  

HDMI to VGA adaptors are available for less than US$10 like this one:

There is no Thunderbolt to VGA adapter yet but you can use a Mini Display Port to VGA adapter like these:

The Thunderbolt port is based on DisplayPort which is the default display port for Mac displays.  Because of this, it is backwards compatible with all current DisplayPort adapters for converting to HDMI, DVI, or VGA.

Hope this helps!
