    Hi

    I have an LG Flatron F900P CRT monitor ( http://www.elara.ie/products/detailsfullat.asp?productcode=ECE751395&productID=55838 ) and want to upgrade the cable used to connect it to my graphics card - Sapphire Radeon 9600XT Atlantis 256M DDR AGP ( https://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.asp?sku=121421 )

    My monitor has BNC connections but is it a vga or an svga monitor?

    I am looking for a good BNC lead but am unsure which type i need.
    Do i need a "HDDB15 Male>5BNC Male" like this cable: http://www.elara.ie/products/detailsfull.asp?productcode=ECE618403&productID=40453 ??

    I would be greatful if anyone could tell me if this is the cable i need or if they could direct me to a high quality cable that would suit my needs.

    vga = 640x480
    svga = 800x600

    so i doubt your monitor is either!

    But the cable you've got listed sounds like the right one. 15 pin male to 5 BNC.
