    hi

    I wanna hook up a second Apple studio Display 17 inch ADC CRT, (i already have one Studio display flat screen)

    I have a Powermac G5.

    I was told I need to get an connector ADC to DVI, and a Power chord adapter.

    I have no problem getting the adapter as it's cheap, but that stupid power adapter is expensive.

    Is it true that I need that power adapter?

    If so, then this cheap studio display will go up in price by over $150 when I add up the connector and the adapter...:(

    The item in the first link you don't need. That is for connecting a DVI display to an ADC port. You need to connect an ADC display to a DVI port. Therefore, you only need the one in the second link.

    Sorry it isn't the other way around.

    There are a few DVI-to-ADC adapters on ebay in the 40-60 dollar (US) range.
