No. Only an old non-SoG capable LCD to an Indogo2 SolidIMPACT.

You can setup and configure it as you like. But you need to fight with
that cryptic video mode compiler. To my experience: SGIs generate SoG
and H/V sync at the same time starting at least with the Indogo2
SolidIMPACT. You just need to wire up the sync pins correctely.
This is a problem, as most 13W3-VGA adapters don't do this.

Depends on the LCD.

Why only 21"? SI/ESI shouldn't have a problem with 1920x1200 at 60Hz.
Not to talk about VPro...
