Default Monitor Distance From Tower

I want to put a 19" LCD in a different room from my HP 750n tower, about sixty feet away. Can this be done , what would I need and what effect would it have on the display, if any??
THANX

I dont remember ever seeing such a long VGA cable either. I dont think that the signal from the VGA adapter would be strong enough to give a good display that far away.

No they don't, but some 15 footers could be connected, I THINK.

Hmm...but if this were a DVI monitor 60' wouldn't pose such issues...

The question is where to find things like that.


Edit: Googling brings me the following links:

http://www.pccables.com/00696.htm (30 ft DVI cables)

http://www.vpi.us/cable-vga.html (VGA extensions up to 100 ft...that's MORE then you need )

I think the second link is EXACTLY what you're looking for, KOOLBRZ. Gotta love Google.
