    Hi all,

    I am planning on buying a G5 and I am working now with 2 CRT monitors (VGA), so I also want to buy a Dr. Bott ADC to VGA adapter. Everywhere I look I see that this adapter works with a powermac G4, nowhere do I see also works with a G5. Does anyone has any experience with this product? Does it also work with a G5 (I don't see why not)?

    Thanks all for responding!

    just to clarify, you want to use your two existing CRT's with VGA connectors on your powermac, right? Well, you need two different adapters. One: ADC to VGA, and the other DVI to VGA. The latter, DVI to VGA comes with the G5. So you only need the ADC to VGA, which is the Dr bott, 0117-ADCV
    this should be all you need and it isn't computer specific, just graphic card specific, so as long as you have an ADC, it will work.

    That is exactly what I mean! Thanks Dr. Jekyl! I thought so, but wasn't sure because everywhere I look they only mention a Powermac G4 never a G5.
