    Hooking-up Dual Monitors
    I recently got a G5 for FCP and want to hook-up two monitors.

    I'd love to use the monitors I already have around. Can my second monitor be a VGA type? I'm using the DVI to VGA adapter Apple supplied for my primary display. Is there an adapter that lets me connect a VGA monitor to the ADC port? Looking at the manual, it seems that Apple really wants me to buy their over-priced flat-panel display.

    i'm pretty sure there's an ADC to DVI adapter, and then you could just get another DVI to VGA adapter. it might be a little pricey, but it'll definitely be a lot cheaper than buying an apple display.
