    I'm confused about all the mini-DVI crap etc. Can someone tell me: Is there anyway to get the new LED Cinema Display to work with my G5 Quad? Or Not?

    I see all the adapters in the Apple store - will one of these make this monitor work with my G5 Quad?

    Thanks.

    No.. there is no DVI > Mini DisplayPort converter/adapter YET, when they do come out they will probably cost a pretty penny I'm sure.

    Yes, if your GPU has Mini Display Port. Otherwise, no.

    Short answer....
    No. To use Apple's LED display the computer must have mini DisplayPort out, and there is no way to add that to a G5.
