    I am about to buy a new G5, but I want to keep my Sony CRT monitor for now. There is a DVI to VGA cable included with the G5, will that cable let me be able to use my Sony monitor with my new G5? Thanks again

    Yep, the DVI-to-VGA adapter comes in the box of the G5. Works perfectly.

    I also want to buy a new G5. What about 2 crt's that I have now? Is there a cable for the second port of the graphics card to VGA?

    Look up the "Dr. Bott ADC VGA Extractor" and similar devices.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Sun Baked. This is exactly what I was looking for! And the price is fairly cheap, only $34, 95. I will be getting one of these when I order my new G5!

    For anyone, this is the exact product, a ADC to VGA adapter:
