Is there any way to use a newer Studio display with the old monitor cards like in the duo dock?

Depends on what you mean by "newer Studio display"... The latest ones are all digital interface, DVI or Apple Display Connector. There is no way to get those working on an old analog-only display adapter.

If you have one of the early Studio displays, with a VGA plug, you just need a VGA-to-DA15 adapter. A multisync adapter would be best, but a fixed frequency, as long as it support the resolution you want, should be fine.

I don't use the adapter on my G3, because I have a voodoo card installed that uses the smaller PC video out. I was able to hook up the dock to a smaller, 13 or 15 inch monitor (PC) and it sort of worked... I could see what was on the screen, but the refresh rate is too high, so the picture sort of scrolls really fast down the screen............
