I recently picked up a CRT monitor on Ebay to go in my arcade cabinet I am building.

It is a 19" ViewSonic Professional Series PF790.

It does not come with cables and I will have to use some of my own or buy them separately. I just wanted to double check with the experts here regarding cable compatibility.

As far as a signal cable, a document I found online reports a "Signal 15-pin mini D-sub" connection for this monitor. I assume this is for any VGA cable. Am I correct in this assumption?

For power, it reports a "Power 3-pin plug (IEC320)." Is there a specific kind of power cable or is this an industry standard? I have a VGA and power cable on an Dell LCD monitor but I thought the cables might differ (especially for power).

Here is the power information for the monitor if it is relevant:
POWER Voltage AC 90–260V 50/60 (+/-3)Hz
Consumption 130W (typ)

The monitor I would take the power cable from says this on the cable: "FAT 02 10A125V)"

Thanks so very much!

D-15 - Yes VGA.

IEC320 - I will let you google that, you should see picture of this connector. There is no magic, is just the connector shape, that's is. There is no intelligent electronic that goes into a power plug. The FAT blah-blah is most likely the cable part# Viewsonic assigns to their own cable, to be disregarded.
