I had a Apple 21" cinema display, it died the other day. I was editing video was rendering a file came back later and monitor was black no power no nothing. I need to get a new monitor.

My G4 has the ADC and VGA connections. I notice that most of the newer monitors (im interested in 20" and above wide screen) have the DVI or DVI-D connections. Is there an adapter you can get that allows you to hook a DVI or DVI-D to the ADC. And how do I know if a monitor will work with the G4? I don't want to buy something and get it home and have it not work with my machine.

I primarily do video editing with Final Cut.

Oh and my video card is a nvidia geforce 4 MX 64MB

thank you for your help.

Apple sells an ADC to DVI adapter.
Most non apple monitors will offer DVI and VGA inputs
