    Hi all I'm a new member : )

    I have just bought an old G4 mirror door,
    with a Radeon 9000 pro graphics card.
    The card has 2 display/monitor ports - a DVI and ADC.

    The problem is, I'm wanting to use 2 displays
    with the computer for graphic/illustration use.
    So I can can have pallettes/tutorials on one monitor
    and a workspace on the other.

    The 2 displays I have are VGA.
    I realise I can get a VGA - DVI adaptor pretty easily.
    However is it possible to get a VGA - ADC?
    as I can't seem to find any.

    Alternatively I was wondering if I could take an old
    graphics card from a G4 graphite AGP (think card is ATI rage 128)
    which has VGA ports on and use that as well as the ATI Radeon
    9000 pro in the G4 mirror door. With one display running
    of one card and the other display running of the other?

    I'm confused!
