    Question Silicon Graphics 1600SW

    Been looking at TFTs for a bit now, and noticed these seem to be going for fairly decent prices on eBay etc.

    http://www.sgi.com/pdfs/2348.pdf

    But are they actually any good? A 17" panel which does 1600x1024 sounds very good (resolution), and as it's SGI I'm assuming the picture will be excellent too.

    Anyone got one?

    They need a special card to drive em, or an adaptor connector.

    They do NOT have a VGA or DVI connector unless modified.
