    OK, I have a rev b PM (specs in sig), right now I am using the VGA adapter that came with it to run a 15" lcd monitor. There is another video port on the card, what is it? Excuse my ignorance. Thank you.

    Lets see, either ADC or DVI...
    Code:
    Graphics IC	Video SDRAM	Connectors
    
    Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Ultra	64 MB DDR	ADC and DVI
    
    ATI Radeon 9600 XT (build-to-order)	128 MB DDR	ADC and DVI
    
    ATI Radeon 9800 XT (build-to-order)	256 MB DDR	ADC and DVI
    
    Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT DDL (build-to-order)	256 MB DDR	two dual link DVIs
    
    Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL (build-to-order)	256 MB DDR	two dual link DVIs
    If it's the ADC port, that is just a DVI port grouped together with a built in USB and Power Brick pass through in a single cable.

    It must be ADC then, thats what I thought. Thanks! I think I may buy a ADC-VGA adapter and hook up my old 15" CRT as a secondary monitor so when I'm working on php homework I don't have to keep putting windows up and down!

    **edit**
    This card DOES have dual monitor support right? I was just on the apple website looking at the dr bott adc/vga extractor and someone posted on there that they hooked it up only to find that their specific card didn't support dual monitors. And I don't want them mirrored either, I want them spanned so I have more screen real estate.
