    Well, just goes to show you should never ask anyone who works at Best Buy for advice on anything technical.

    I forgot to mention--there's a guy on eBay always selling VGA-Mac adaptors. Might be what you're looking for. Anyway, they're like $8 a pop or something, so it's pretty cheap.

    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.
