Hi all!

I have a late 2005 Power Mac G5 with one of those annoying GeForce cards where the DVI plugs are too close together to run 2 displays. (See this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2842)

I cannot find this extension cable, which is unfortunate because I just picked up a second Cinema Display on eBay, and now I can't use it! (Unless I want to crack open the plastic on the DVI connector end...)

I called Apple, they no longer make or offer this cable, and are unable to locate one for me at this time. Does anyone happen to have theirs? If so, are you willing to part with it?

TIA,
Mike

You know, it's funny, I saw the one listing from Hong Kong and thought, "I'm not paying $25+ for a knock-off", and stopped looking. *bangs head into wall*

Thanks!

Apple makes their products in China, its only natural that it would be cheaper for people to sell them from there.
