I haven't been able to find a component to DisplayPort adapter. Best I have been able to find was a component to HDMI or to a VGA adapter at Monoprice.
Their HDMI version had many reports of "crushed blacks" and reduced PQ which is no surprise to me considering the price.

The monitor I'm now using has HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort & VGA. All but the DisplayPort are in use so, logically I would want to use that for the input. The devices that I have, I would prefer to use their component output. All (that I could find) current PC monitors do not have component inputs anymore.

Any ideas? I would like to stay under $100 or so depending on what's available. Surely not too much over that.

No idea. It's a ATI 2600XT. It has two DVI outs. One is used with a VGA adapter (for another purpose) the other is straight DVI to the DVI in of the monitor.

But, how does that help me?

well I just thought about video card has the slot for display port but it doesn't that was the easier solution

you need DVI to display port http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10246&cs_id=1024604&p_id=6001&seq=1&format=4#feedback

or

VGA to Display port http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10246&cs_id=1024609&p_id=6021&seq=1&format=2

Hope that helps

Both links are the wrong items. They are DP to something. One is mini DP (for MAC) to DVI and the other is to VGA which is the opposite of what I need.

Something to DP is extremely common.
