    I know this has been answered a thousand times and since I've never owned an apple and just got one off ebay, wanna try and get everything ready for when it arrives, which means having a monitor. I got the G4 DP 800mhz. I think it's quicksilver, well it has to be right, I think the DP800 only came as a quicksilver. Anyways, I saw this: apple to VGA on ebay and think it migth work, but not exactly sure. I have two pretty old monitors for my PC's and won;t have money to throw down for a decent apple screen for a few months.

    Any suggestions/direction would be wonderful...

    You might need a DVI -> VGA adapter, but you definitely won't need the one you linked, they're ancient!

    You may not need an adapter, it may have a VGA port on the back...

    Like it change things all that much besides adding 32MB of memory and concurrent use of two monitors.
