    I have a G4 (mirrored door/single 1,25 ghz PPC) with an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro video card (AGP). Currently I have a 22" LCD (Samsung) connected via the DVI slot using the supplied Apple DVI-VGA adapter. The other slot is an ADC. I would like to connect a 2nd 15in LCD w/ VGA. The ADC-VGA connectors are way too expansive. I also don't want to buy an Apple Color Display. If I purchase a 3rd party PCI VGA card (like the ATI RADEON 7000 MAC EDITION 32MB VGA PCI CARD 10660) will my 2 monitors work in DUAL DISPLAY EXTENDED (not mirrored) MODE?

    I've seen plenty of ADC to DVI adapters, but only one ADC to VGA and it was almost $200. That's why I'm considering just getting a PCI card w/ VGA...I do have 4 extra bays available. I'll take other suggestions though!

    Get a ADC to DVI adapter and run your Samsung from that, then use the DVI to VGA adapter for your second monitor. I did that with my old G5.
