Using a Mac Monitor on a PC?

I have an expensive SuperMac 19" Color Trinitron Monitor (75 Hz, with 80 MHz oscillator required) with RGB, and 2 other BNC type Connectors.  I want to be able to use it on a new PC that I am building. Is there a way to use this monitor on a PC?  The other 2 BNC connectors refere to "sync in" and indicate HD or VD.  I would like details information if it is possible.  Cables, wiring, special video card. Etc.

Thanks,

Tom

I have two large screen 1 is a 19" SuperMac from 1993, it only has the red, green and blue attatchments; but I also have a 20" monitor we bought in 1996 it has the three color connectors plus 2 others that also attatch to the back of the monitor; one is  H/H+v and the other is V. Yours sound like they are the same thing just named slightly different, for a different brand. Presuming you have a standard supermac 19" monitor with a red, green and blue cable that connects to the back of your monitor, the other two also sound like they connect to the back of the monitor, are there places marked on the back for them to be connected?!

There is an adapter out by Enhance that should work it is called "Liberty Adaptor PC to Mac", I know you can find it in PC Malls catalog (1-800-555-6255) and it is $34 plus shiping. Or you can call Enhance directly at 1-800-717-8757

Dear Stryder:

Thank you.  It is amazing how many Mac stores or PC stores have told me this could not be done. I am of a technical nature, and knew there had to be a way, but did not know how to do it myself.  I will contact Enhance and make sure their unit will work with my monitor.  If it does, I will send you another thank you!

Best regards,
