Yes, your monitor have to be a multisync monitor to support Mac resolution. There is two kinds of adapters... One that's switchable between resolutions and one without DIP-switches.
Go for the one with the switches, if you have a graphics card that support different resolutions you will be able to tune the switches to support the maximum resolution for your monitor.


The standard monitor-out on II ci is a 15 pin D-sub (two rows)
and the standard PC monitor uses a 15 pin HD D-sub (three rows)

So the adapter should be like: Female 15 pin HD D-sub to a Male 15 pin D-sub

the price's $5-15 depending...
