What Amiga model?

If you buy a scan doubler it doubles the frequency and you plug it into rgb out and it does the rest.

With Amiga 500+, 600, 1200, 4000 you have to run the binaries and copy the monitors from storage/monitors to devs/monitors. Then change it with prefs/screen mode. I found double ntsc and vgaonly gave the best pic for me. It also means 98% of games will no longer work

Yes - if you get an Amiga 23-pin to VGA 15-pin there is a currently available monitor that will support most Amiga modes very nicely - Lenovo T22i. No scan doubler or other conversion required.

See https://imgur.com/a/W1rH4Lt for samples.

Or if you just want Workbench (System Friendly) Software
you may get away with MultiScan Productivity Mode (+ VGAOnly)

This list can be helpful. Still need a 23pin to 15pin adapter though. http://15khz.wikidot.com/
No guarantees and as usual ymmv.
