Default Apple LCD Monitor on a PC

Right, is there any way this can be done? I found a very cheap, nice, 20" Apple LCD Monitor to replace my 12" beige CRT from the 90's, will the Apple LCD work on a Dell Dimension or will I need to get some sort of thing that allows it to, or will it flat out not work?

Thanks!

is there DVI or VGA input on it? then yes

a monitor is a monitor
not all monitors are created equal, but they all work with everything

...unless theyre HDCP >:O

Apple told me a DVI Connection could make it PC compatible. Yay. If they're cheap I'll get a DVI connection and plug it into my ATI Radeon 9550 256 MB (if it also has this lol, we're throwing a lot of ifs out there).

A Radeon 9550 has a DVI connector on it, its the bottom white connector.

Okie dokie then... I just need a dvi connector to re-configure the format of the Apple monitor and then plug it in to the graphics card? Correct?

Ya, just a dvi cable, like this one. And you can get different lengths depending on how far away your monitor is from your computer.

Also, your video is not integrated right?

Well, at the moment it is, but, I just bought an ATI Radeon 9550 256 MB as shown above and it should be here in a week or so. My computer desk is only like 2 feet wide so I reckon I don't need a extremely long one haha. Maybe like 5 feet in case I get a new computer desk.

Just be sure you have a DVI connection on your computer.
