Since the 24" Apple LED display was introduced the use of an "Mini-DisplayPort Extension Cable Male-Female" has been discussed as a solution to have the Mac Pro further away from the display - on the floor, etc.
Use Google or Yahoo to search for "mini displayport extender cable" for examples of suppliers and an Apple support discussion with Topic: Is there a Mini Display Port Extension

I've read in the support groups that it's a stretch because cable is quite short. You need to have the box close to the screen.

The cable is long enough to hook it up a few foot away.
