    Mac Users: Please Read

    The question I wanna ask is how do i connect a second monitor to my PowerMac G5? I already bought a DVI to VGA connector and have plugged in a old Trinitron Monitor. Is there some device that plugs into the ADC ( Apple Display Connector) that wil allow a standard VGA monitor to run on the Mac.

    I did it before with two old monitors, because I lucked out and had an old ADC type monitor. So I know it can be done. Unfortunately, I no longer am in possesion of said monitor.

    this might help

    This is what I used to get an analog monitor to work as a secondary monitor for my powermac, check your nearest apple authorized dealer or order online (mine arived quicker then expected).
