    Ive got a 22" ADC cinema screen which is awesome, Im looking to move my machines around though so my G5 wont be connected to it but a Mac Mini instead. does anyone know where I can still pick up a ADC to DVI convertor for a reasonable price? on ebay the cheapest i've seen is £67 for a used one.

    I think this is what the OP is asking about.
    You won't be finding one of these for $30.

    Those two items linked above are for different purposes. The Apple one linked first is for using the ADC monitor with a non-ADC computer. Remember that the ADC monitor gets it's power from a Mac with an ADC output, so if one uses the ADC monitor with a Mac Mini or PC or anything without an ADC output, one also needs to supply power to the ADC monitor, which is what the Apple converter linked by jbarley does.

    The other one is for using a Mac that has an ADC output with a DVI monitor that does not require power. Totally different use, and it's far cheaper to buy.
