    It will probably do the same thing as the $39 ADC-to-DVI cable (didn't look at the specifics of the cable you pointed out -- but since it's a Dell cable probably not.)

    The $99 DVI-to-ADC cable includes a power brick, which the ADC monitors need when connecting to DVI.

    Wow, save $12 -- wonder how much the Dr. Bott cable is.

    It depends on what you mean by ADC to DVI. If you're looking to run an Apple ADC display off a non-ADC video card, this cable won't do because it doesn't supply power. From looking at it, I think this one is only for running a DVI display off an ADC-equipped Mac. Which one are you trying to accomplish?

    Actually, I found out that it's not even an ADC connector (it looks close, but isn't.) It is a projector-specific connector, and I forgot that a connector (this exact one) actually comes with the unit.

    Thanks for the help!
