Old Beige G3 --> New Monitor

Hi:

My old G3 keeps chugging along but the monitor is acting like it is dying. I'd like to connect a Dell 19" flat panel to it. I'm going to need a special cable or adapter, though. The beige, with built-in video card, needs a DB-15 (two row) connector. The monitor needs an HDB15 (three row) connector.

I see that there are some adapters with DIP switches and others without. Can someone offer some advice on the simplest way to do this?

Thanks,

Craig

We have the right one in stock - just email - close by too.
You MIGHT want to consider a better video card to drive the Dell. Have those too.

Just to close the loop, I bought the Griffin "MacPnP Universal Macintosh Video Adapter" for $23 at Canadian Computer in Oakville. With the DIP switches (whoa, what a time warp...) set for "Plug and Play", my new Dell 19 inch flat panel is now happily showing me 1280 X 1024.

Remarkably, my OS9 Monitors control panel shows "DELL 1905FP" in its title. It's reading that from the monitor?!?

Very happy so far!
