I've got bunches of female 13w3 to male DE15(HD15) cables from Sun
equipment if you want one. $10 including shipping should get it anywhere
in the US.

Also, there's a difference in wiring betwen Sun, SGI, and IBM 13w3
connectors, specifically where they sync pins are. If you're using a
system that has sync-on-green, it shouldn't be a problems. However, if
you're trying to hook a monitor with a 13w3 to a PC, it gets more
interesting. At one point I ended up taking a 13w3 male to male cable and
splicing a HD15 on one end, so that I could hook my IBM monitor (which I'm
using right now, actually) up to my desktop PC at work.
