Is this the part that I need for setting up a dual Monitor on a Mac Pro???
I have just purchased a Mac Pro 8 core 2.66 for video, websites and graphic design. I currently have two perfectly good Samsung P2250 22-Inch Widescreen Touch of Color monitors. I would like to set up a dual monitor system. Is this the part I need to achieve this?

No. That is for display's 30 inches or larger. The Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter is what you are looking for. Keep in mind on that particular Samsung there is a feature called Multi-screen, which is like screen inside a screen allowing different views on for Windows users it was exciting to have 2 views, for Mac users it's called Spaces & we aren't limited to 2; so it's not a big thing. However, if you're desperate to go retro with those monitors and run the Multi-view, you will have to do it in Windows. Otherwise, enjoy your awesome system (I have major system envy) with dual screens using those adapters and spaces if need be :-)
