    I need several (probably 8 total) 6-10 foot analog VGA cables, looking to buy them or trade for them.

    It seems most monitors these days ship with both VGA and DVI cables-- I assume most of you using the DVI so there are many unused new-VGA cables out there collecting dust.

    I would like to purchase some-- or I can trade brand-new DVI cables (6-10 footers) in return for your VGA.

    Anyone have short VGA cables they wanna part with?

    Well, I had one offer fall through-- i find it impossible to believe there aren't dozens of these sitting in a box somewhere...

    Anyone have some they could part with?

    Vince,
    Do you need the cables with VGA plugs on both ends or
    the VGA-5 bnc?
    From what I understand you need vga on both ends.
    I should be able to get both styles cheap from my local computer recycler.

    UPDATE:
    When I mean cheap, I mean he may charge me $1-$2 each.
    I would also take a trade for a few of the DVI cables if they are DVI-D

    I don't know much about DVI- but I have a few from new DELL monitors my office has received. If you can tell me how to tell the difference from looking, I'll let you know which they are.

    I need normal VGA to connect between a monitor and card, no BNC. If some 6-10 footers can cost me under $5 a piece, that would be fine.
