Hello All,

I am about to have a VGA (15pin) to RGB (9pin) cable made specifically for me (according to the instructions found here (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=127.0)). I also have a PC computer with Windows XP which has a nVidia 6200 AGP video card in it. I have couple of questions:

I have already installed the 15Khz utility (it detected my GPU and installed 15Khz), and lowered my resolution to 640x480 and have rebooted the Windows XP.

The simple instruction says that I should reboot and wait for Windows to boot back into the GUI environment, but I am not sure what to do next!

I have NOT connected my 1084S-D1 monitor yet, because I am not sure if there is any extra steps needed or not.

Should I connect my 1084S-D1 now and see if I can view Windows desktop and GUI on this monitor? Will it hurt my monitor?

Please let me know!

Thanks to SailorSat (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=profile;u=13595) for his 15khz utility, andStedy (http://eab.abime.net/member.php?u=10761) and Desiv for helping me out! I ended up using the schematics posted by Stedy (http://eab.abime.net/member.php?u=10761) and asked the gentleman who was making the cable for me to follow that. It works!

Here are some screen-shots (http://www.flickr.com/photos/48901682@N02/7191963660/in/photostream/lightbox/), but it has to be seen up close and personal, the difference between S-Video and RGB->VGA is day and night! The richness of the color, the natural "scanlines", and the overall glossy, shiny, and bright colorful sprites and images is beyond belief!

I am using PowerStrip to create resolution profiles for my 10804S-D1 (running at 320x240) and my modern DELL LCD at higher resolution, and maintain extended dual view setting.

I would really appreciate if you have tips and additional optimization that you can think of!

Thanks million again!
