    For my white 24" iMac Core 2 duo? I've got my hands on an inexpensive acer monitor (will be just fine for my needs) and want to use it with my iMac. What adapter or cable do I need?

    On the monitor there is a VGA port and a DVI port.

    Thanks!

    Either you have Mini DVI or Mini DisplayPort as video output on the iMac.
    Below is a short summary on both ports and should help you decide what adapter you can use.
