    ATI Radeon 9800 Connector Question

    I have the Radeon 9800 for my G5, it's an older but still pretty good graphics card. I have two 22" monitors now and hooked up one of the monitors using the DVI port on the card and monitor. Where I am stumped is the other port (video out) on the card looks pinned like a DVI but the outer edges are rounded when all the DVI cables I see have an almost rectangular shape to them. So I have the follow questions and if you know any one of them please let me know:

    1) What is that type of port called so I can Google it and find a cable
    2) Do you know where I can get a cable for that end that has a 'standard' DVI connector on the other end for the monitor?
    3) Is this connection a digital connection?

    That sounds like it is Apple's proprietary format known as ADC.

    It looks like you would want one of these.
