   I use NEC Multisync LCDs (1810X and 2080UX+ I think are the model 
numbers) with a lot of SOG systems, but haven't tried them with any SGIs 
yet.  They work fine on stuff like HP-9000 series 300 machines, etc.  I 
use VGA to BNC adapter cables that are cheap on Amazon, and leave the 
Hsync and Vsync BNCs dangling.

   Sometimes there is some banding and such, but it's still very usable.
