Thread: Which Monitor for G4 ?
11-19-2004, 03:12 PM #1Which Monitor for G4 ?
Hi Guys / Gals,
Can anyone tell me which of the Powermac G4s are compatible with the Apple 17" Studio Display and which are not .
I am asking because someone has offered me a G4 ( not sure which model it is until I see it ) and if I buy it I would like to use it with a 17" Studio Display if possible .
Thanks in advance for any help

I'm sure it'll be fine with any of the models.

No, the 17" Studio, I'm assuming your talking about the LCD version, will NOT work. I have one, with a Radeon 9000 Pro w/ 128MB RAM, via an Apple DVI to ADC adapter. You have to use the adapter. Even though I have a video card with an ADC output, my mac (PowerMac G4, Sawtooth), does not support that much current though the AGP slot. I believe PowerMac G4 Quicksilver 2002 and up WILL natively support a direct connection from the ADC port on your mac to monitor. If your system is before Quicksilver 2002, you need to use the DVI-ADC adapter.
You could try it, but I would'nt, considering the load that the Studio monitor would have on your video card.
