I think it is the other way around? You can use a PC monitor on a MAC. I'm not sure if you could use a MAC monitor on a PC. Depends on the video card I think. MAC monitors use a different freq. I believe it is fixed, unlike a PC monitor. Depends on the MAC monitor. I have a 21" HP Fixed Freq w/ a Sony Tritron Tube that I can't use be it requires a special video card for PCs, but works fine with a MAC. I believe it is the same deal.

No, you can use Mac monitors on PCs. The problem is, you have to be in Windows to get the right video mode for the monitors. I think most Unix clones will let you switch the console video mode, but I don't think you can do it under DOS. Fixed frequency video cards that actually will display all your boot up info and work under DOS aren't that hard to come by--just pretty expensive. I've seen them go for $50 on eBay, though, and I just grabbed one from another source for $40.
