Mitsubishi HL7965KW-SG to VGA

Hello,

   I seem to have inherited 3 Mitsubishi HL7965KW-SG monitors.  I've never touched anything of SGI's before and I bought a 13W3 Adapter to convert to VGA.  I am noticing that they all flicker.  I have read that I might need a Fixed Frequency card or another card that does something with Sync on Green.  I need some good ideas and money is an object here.  Unfortunately I understand it to only a limited extent and I am looking for resolution.  Explanation is good, but resolution is what I am looking for.  Thanks to all in advance!!!

-Jen

Well, I was at the website listings before, however I am noticing that I may need a video sync converter.  I have the 13w3 connector, but I am seeing that a $50-$80 part for the vs conversion.  Any thoughts on any other required components?  I don't want to purchase a dedicated fixed frequency card.

Thanks!

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the accepted answer, bur sorry that wasn't complete enough.
The problem in this case of situation, I am far for being an expert in video so excuse for any mistake, is to find another solution than hardware solution.

If you want, I can give to you a electronical scheme for video sync conversion, but that won't really help, cause you will have to build it.
And I guess that buying directly the correct cable will be easier and cheaper than trying to build it by yourself.

But thanks anyway.
