    A friend just gave me an ACD (I'm not sure of the size, I believe it is 23", 1920x1200,which looks like a 2002-2004 vintage.

    I think I need a $125 cable to connect the ADC to a DVI adapter. My inclination is to just dump it, is there any reason I should keep it? It doesn't seem like it's worth the cost of the cable, better to put that towards a new display.

    Thoughts?

    Nope. $125 just to run a 10 year old monitor that may or may not last a month? You can get some pretty nice 23" monitors for $125.

    No point in putting it on craigslist. No one want's it.

    They're good monitors; the problem is the ADC input. I found myself in a similar position a while back, and I found an ADC cable on Craigslist for $35... No way I'd pay the absurd $125+ people are asking on eBay.

    I sold one on here without the power supply. Didn't get much for it, but the guy that got it was stoked, and it seemed such a shame to dump it.

    The 23" ADC screens are still a rather nice display. I'd suggest trying to sell it or looking for a cheap adapter for it. The adapters generally go for about $80 on eBay. Sometimes you can get one cheaper than that. The screens go for about $100-$175 depending on the condition.
