    I have an old Apple 17" Studio Display LCD I want to use on a PC of mine. Is it possible to put an old AGP graphics card with an ADC connecter from a PowerMac G4 into my PC and use it to run the display? I am aware that there are converters out there, but I don't want to spend $100 if I could simply put the video card with the ADC input into my PC. Thanks for your help!

    You're going to have to spend $100. The Power Macs had an additional power connector.

    Do you mean they had an additional power connector going to the video card? I am looking at a picture of the actual video card and I do not see a place where that would be. It looks like a standard video card, but has an input for DVI and ADC. I attached a photo.

    I've circled the additional power connector. The rest are the standard AGP pins. ;)

    Thanks for your help. It look's like the $40 I paid for the LCD will either turn into $140, or be put on eBay/craigslist.
