My G5 died, but I love my huge monitor, isn't there a female ADC connector adapter/converter/cable that I can connect to my monitor & then connect via DVI or VGA to work with my PC?

Technically speaking it's a no, there are ways people have been playing around with to do it, but you'd have to be both brave and technically minded...

There is an adapter to convert an Apple display with the ADC connector to DVI. eBay is probably the best place to shop for one...since I think that Apple no longer sells it.

They used to be pretty darn expensive...but it looks like prices have fallen from what I see on eBay. They are selling for various prices...so you have to shop for the best price. Here's an example:

Be cautious as thse are getting on, over ten years old now, and they do fail as the power, signal and USB are a big load. I would give 'sold as is' items a big miss.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
