Connect Mac TFT monitor to a PC?

A son seeing the Apple Power Mac G4 I have been given, would like the monitor.

On the Mac the video connection is a complex 34+ pin affair which not only connects the signal but the power for the monitor as well.

Is there a Video card for the PC which would be suitable?
If there is, the cost may well be a significant proportion of the cost of a new PC 17" TFT, but I would appreciate any comments to settle this one.

I want to connect my Mac style monitor to my PC!

Go away! Leave us alone! (just kidding) There are many complexities involved here. Many Mac monitors use "sync-on-green" or are fixed frequency monitors. We recommend you try click here.

Neither link worked for me,
The possible beneficiary from this sort of fandango is hard to please and I would get the blame when it all came unscrewed between now and far into the future!

I'll tell him its "not a go-er"

Thank you.

It will probably sell better on eBay as a complete affair, and someone might buy it for the monitor...alone.
