Hey community,

So my plan is to get myself an Apple Cinema display off of a friend. I want to know if I will be able to run this off of my computer in my signature.

The monitor is ADC, or Apple Display Connector. There is an adapter on Newegg:

but I am not positive it will work. Would anyone be able to clarify?

Thanks,

Cinema displays should connect to a pc just fine with the proper adapter.

Well, it actually turns out the one I wanted to buy is too old and has the ADC, which I can't find an adapter for. So I'm just going to keep my current monitor for now.
