For reference - I went ahead and purchased the adapter. Here's why it
won't work: The pundit-r DVI out connector is a DVI-D Digital Dual Link
(http://www.datapro.net/images/1142.jpg) and the adapter is DVI-I
Integrated DIG/ANA Dual connection (http://www.datapro.net/images/1148.jpg).

Now I'm thinking about giving the Ultimate XP Pro PC-to-TV Converter
 or Grand UltraView EX
a try. I also thought about trying a cheap (sub $100) nVIDIA card with
component out but I'm concerned about problems with it coexisting with
the onboard video.

Any comments?
