I have an interesting trade offer for a 22" Cinema Display that I would use with my G5. I've got a Radeon 9800 and am wondering if the display is compatible? Any problems/drawbacks using the older display? I thought there was some discussion about exactly this setup on Apple's discussion boards but they're down right now. I want to get back to this guy soon as it's the best offer I've had and I REALLY want to move up from my 17" display.
Thanks

First off, the 22" cinema display is awesome. . sure it aint the newest/greatest anymore, but in it's day everbody drooled over how awesome they were (and they still get nice drool today)...

Now, the thing is, if you have an ADC radeon 9800 (which is the only one that works in the G5, I think) -- it's got a blue PCB, (and ADC, of course!) then you can run the cinema display without a hitch.

Otherwise, you'd need a DVI to ADC power adaptor, which costs $99.

Hope ya enjoy your new monitor! If anything, your friends or whoever stops by will get a kick out of it, especially since they tend to look like no other monitor on this planet (except of course, other cinema displays from that time)
Aloha

Thanks Link. My 9800 has a DVI and an ADC port. I'm going for it!
