Great choice. The dual-processor really cranks through the video
rendering. Look around for deals on the G4 450DP for around $1500-1600 as
they have been spotted for around there lately. I got mine for $1700 from
the Apple site. warehouse.com has it for $1600 right now with free
additional 128MB RAM.

All of the Apple PowerMacs (tower versions, I can't speak for the
others) have had standard 15-pin mini-Dsub 'VGA' connectors since the G3
days. The timing is not different and no adapter is needed. I currently
use a PowerMac G4 Dual 450Mhz with a Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 100e directly
connected with the standard cable and it works beautifully.
p.s. to avoid inquiring emails, yes I work for Intel and yes I use Macs at
home for creative work in photo and video. no, I am not speaking for
Intel in this posting.
