Apple Macs and pc hardware (like monitors, graphics cards and memory on OS X)
Posted on 2004-11-18
I have a few questions regarding Apple Macs and OS X.
I'm planning on buying my dad an Apple Mac for christmas since the last computer he got (my old windows machine), he managed to totally nuke. (as in it's dead now)
I have a few technical questions for you mac people;
1. Are there adapters so you can use a normal pc monitor with macs? (I believe there are, I think the Mac uses it's own monitor connector)
2. Is it possible to use pc graphics cards and memory in Macs?
Now, it seems to me since Apple Macs have normal memory slots and an AGP slot in theory they should. However, since pc graphics cards use vga/dvi out might this be problematic?
