    Dual Monitor Setup?

    Ok, i have: ATY,Rage128Pro: Chipset Model: ATY,Rage128Pro Type: Display Bus: AGP Slot: SLOT-1 VRAM (Total): 16 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Displays: Apple Studio Display: Display Type: CRT Resolution: 1600 x 1200 @ 64 Hz Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Not Supported Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Not Supported And i would like to set up dual monitors. my gfx card has 1 ADC, and 1 DVI. to buy a DVI to ADC (since i have 2 20" ADC Monitors), it costs about 70 bucks on ebay. but im not convinced this will work. i dont want to spend 70$ on something that might not work. so yes, im asking you guys if you think i can set up my dream dual monitors.

    is the IMac 20"

    wow thanks a lot for the very long reply. after thinking about it, a laptop might actually be the right thing for me. you gave me a lot of usefull points on the macbook pro, and i think it might actually be the better side. thank you very much, and i'll be checking this topic again to see if anyone else has different views about the subject.

    is the IMac 20"

    Okay, let me explain my situation. i am 15 years old, and i dont have a job. but i plan on getting one this summer. The new iMac 20" G5 seems to be a good enough deal for 1500$ US. I do a LOT of photoshop, and i like multitasking. (ex Itunes, Firefox, Torrent, Photoshop, MSN etc.) right now, i have an old 466 MHz PowerPC G4, 640 MB SDRAM. my real question is, should i go out and buy some more RAM, and a new graphics card? or do you think it's worth it to go buy a new imac early after summer.

    Show off your Desktop

    well i recently changed back to the normal mac style, after getting tired of different shapeshifter themes. and unlike lots of people, i decided i liked putting my apps on my desktop rather than the dock because i was getting tired of it. (and i liked to look at my wallpaper) (i made the wallpaper)

    Using an old PowerMac G4 as a Media Center

    that's weird... my g4 PPC 433 mhz handles 720 px fine. as for downloading your shows, there is a program that uses rss and torrent to download shows, (rss comes from a tv show torrent site, not sure if i can mention it here) it's called Democracy Player. but for some reason, it doesn't download very fast as opposed to an other torrent client. i have stopped using it because it was downloading my shows around 10 kb/sec. i have been thinking of doing the same thing as you want. anyway i hope i helped a tiny bit.

    Itunes Sync with PSP?

    I've heard a few places where they tricked their ITunes into thinking their PSP was an IPod shuffle or something. so it would automatically sync with it. is there any way of doing this on 10.3.9?
