Adapter for monitor stand?

I ordered this dual monitor stand: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Q3S7LM.  However, one of my monitors doesn't fit the four hole layout on the stand.  It's a Samsung SyncMaster 245BW.  The four holes on the back of this monitor are farther from each other than the holes on the stand, which I believe is more standard.

Is there adapter or something specific I need to look for to make this work?

The standard mounting size for most monitors is either 75mmx75mm or 100mmx100mm. The Samsung SnynMaster 245BW has a 100mmx200mm mounting bracket. Adapters are about $20.00 - $50.00 per bracket!! Or you can get a "200X200mm Bracket Universal Adapter" at MonoPrice.com for about  $3.73 each.  I don't expect that you will have to modify it a bit to fit your 100mmx200mm.

Use 4 metric sized screws and some standard washers to attach the "MonoPrice: 200X200mm Bracket Universal Adapter" plate and 4 standard screws, washers, and nuts to attach the adapter to the monitor stand mounting bracket. The metric screws were about $2.00 each at Lowes!!

39 bucks!  Oh man.  But that's what I need since i want an all in one and don't want to spend time running things down (i.e. proper screws and such).

monoprice.com bracket is cheap but then I'd begin spending lots of time trying to get the right screws and such.

Thanks.

I think this also works for $10 cheaper: http://www.havis.com/products/DEVMT_MNTR_ADPTR_FLSFE_CAM_KIT-38644-970.html.  At least I know what to look for now.
