Recently I visited Micro Center to look at the Mac Pro I am interested in, along with the tower I need a monitor that will work with the machine that has a DVI or MiniDisplayPort connector. I saw the following 27" LED Cinema Display:
It has the MiniDisplayPort and supports higher than HD resolution. I would like to use two of these for video editing applications. However, I saw various 27" LCD displays in the $349-$399 range that seem to be the equivalent of the Apple Display, only with 1080p HD resolution.
Would the Apple monitor be worth the extra price over say, a Dell/HP/Asus/Acer display? And what if I were to connect two DVI displays to the Mac Pro with only a single dual-link DVI and two DisplayPort connectors? Would I need an additional ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card in the Mac Pro to get the additional DVI connector? Apple makes a DisplayPort to DVI but I'm not sure if it will even work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
