That depends on the video card, monitor, type of cable, and the 
resolution you use.  The lower the resolution the better it will work.

In one place, I drive about that distance using a VGA distribution 
amplifier box, but I am only doing 1024x768, and it still isn't perfect 

Several companies make boxes just for this purpose though, called 
console extenders.  Gefen seems to be one of the most respected brands.
