I have an Octane and O2 that I need a monitor, possibly 2. I know that the O2 has a HD15 and a 13w3 connector on it. I’m not sure about the Octane having a HD15 connector. Please send me info about what you might have to sale, cost including shipping to 75067 (in Texas). Thanks.

you can buy pretty much any Dell 24" LCD panel that takes VGA and DVI input - every one I researched is SOG and should work with SGI. There are many on ebay and maybe local to you. Make sure they have VGA/DVI - no HDMI.

Agreed - The Dell 2407wfp is a really nice monitor for 1920x1200 and it has loads of inputs. If you want traditional 4:3 then the 1800fp is great. Just be aware, due to a timing bug in V6/V8 VPro gfx 1280x1024 at 60hz won’t work, you will need to run at 59hz or 75hz I recall. No problems like this on MGRAS or O2 though.
