Um....sorry,I mean ADC to VGA:???:
Can anyone tell me if this is a possibility?could this work well enough as a solution for using two VGA monitors with this card in non graphics intensive applicatations?
Are there any concerns to be had with converting ADC to VGA for use in dual monitor situations?
Thanx.

I'll let you know...

I'll let you know in a couple of days.

I'm currently attempting the same thing with a Radeon 7500. I received ADC-DVI adapter today, and am waiting on backstock for DVI-VGA.

I couldn'd find a ADC-VGA adapter anywhere.

I'm hoping for some decent results, but a bit worried that I may get ghosting (like you see with poor cables) due to all the adapters....

Here is one that I found.

It's either this,or shell out more cash for an ATI Radeon 7000 to use in a PCI slot.This also raises concerns as to whether or not the drivers for the two cards function well together.I have tried using the AGP GeForce2 Mx with an ATI Rage pro in aPCI slot,and end up experiencing slow/buggy screen redraws on both monitors,as well primary monitor confusion at startup.
I would consider just getting ATI the whole way around,except that I cannot wait for the extra shipping time for the BTO(B.S.O!).
SOme dual monitor support!
Just a bit more B.S.advertising from Apple.:D

Damn....

I sure wish I had seen that before I spent the same amount for ADC to DVI & DVI to VGA...I suppose if I ever have a DVI monitor, it will be useful
