Need monitor cable

Any idea where I can get one? I'm sure Fry's has one but I want to make sure before heading out that way. Unless someone here has one that they can spare

I have a spare but I'm at work. A lot of those small shops have them for KVM setups and stuff. I do know that best buy and office depot carry them as well, although you'll probably pay a premium for their elite belkin cables etc...

I'm off tomorrow so if my cousin hasn't picked one up (it's for his monitor) then I'll probably hit up Fry's. If I can't find it cheap, I might holler at your Cruz and buy one from ya

My cousin went up to Fry's today (he didn't tell me he was going or I would have went with him) and he said he found the SVGA Cable for like $6 or 7. Guess we will be picking it up tomorrow. Thanks everybody.

Question I dont know what I was thinking....

For whatever reason I was thinking you were looking for an SVGA to 5 BNC cable like the older large monitors used. SVGA to SVGA is still a 15 lead cable and if you found a new one for $6-7 bucks you can't go wrong.

I would have figured $10-15 bux anyway

Ahh... Haven't seen the BNC cables in a while... Since we pulled a bunch of old machines at one of our offices to be donated to charity

For those out this direction, check out the Discount Electronics store over on the south-east corner of Walnut Hill and Beltline in Irving.

Kinda like a army/navy surplus store but it has computer parts instead of gas masks and fatigues.

Dude, have you ever been in there?? There real expensive. I'd rather drive a little farther and go to Fry's and wait in line. Or better yet, wait until Fry's opens up off of MacArthur

Yeah but I was buying some used video cards and they weren't too bad. I didn't see anything in there that was "new" but when you're in a pinch for something they usually have it.

But the Fry's is 4x closer and would be pretty damn cool when it opens.
