    I was thinking of getting a 23 inch cinema display, is there any way to get an RCA to DVI adapter so I could plug in a console and not have delay? I'd get the 24 inch dell, but it drops frames in final cut, it isn't as sexy and I'm not as comfortable with dell.

    EDIT: I just found this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/con...DVITRCAC18&is=REG&Q=&O=productlist&sku=353560

    but I am looking for the reverse.

    EDIT:
    would this http://www.trianglecables.com/hsdvi-ff.html

    plus this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/con...637&is=REG&addedTroughType=categoryNavigation

    work to hook up a console if plugged the audio into another source.

    No. Those won't work. You need a fairly expensive box that will digitise the RCA input and then re-broadcast that signal as DVI-D. The convertor you showed is one-way only, the wrong way.

    Something like this will work. Is it really worth the price?

    No the adapter doesn't exist besides what robbieduncan suggested. I have the Dell 24" (2405) and have never dropped any frames in final cut with it.

    My dell 20 inch has RCA in, I just use that. Works well.
