    Stupid question, perhaps...

    I picked up a nearly-free old 20" ACD (with ADC connector) and hooked it up to the quicksilver--it works, but all the text is slightly ghosted (about 1mm below where the text is, it appears again, but very very faint--gives the appearance of being in rather soft focus from a distance). Could this be due to the relatively meagre 32MB of VRAM that I've got, or is it just a bad monitor? Software issue maybe? (I hope)

    You could run a 23" off that machine if you really wanted to. The ghosting is due to either your video card or your monitor, no idea what it really is. Try checking the plug for the monitor to ensure no pins are bent and all that.

    Seriously that sounds more like a VGA problem haha, not an ADC/DVI problem! Weird.
