To use a older Apple 22" Cinema Display on a PC with a DVI port, can i use a straight cable adapter, or would i need a an adapter with intergrate power and usb cable.

Ive been told various things, but i want to make sure before i go out and buy anything.

Thanks

It depends which 22" display you have. I'm pretty certain there were two incarnations of the 22" display, one with a VGA connection and another with and ADC connector.

If you have an ADC connector model you need to purchase a DVI to ADC converter OR if you a VGA model you need to purchase a DVI to VGA adapter.

Check this Apple page (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=33001) for a complete list of every adapter ever made by Apple. The conveters I mention above are right down the bottom the page.
