  • Dealing with this myself right now. The answer is no, out of the box this monitor will not work with the Nvidia 8800 GT cards that shipped with most Mac Pros in early 2008.

    The reason for this is the card has 2 DVI ports and the monitor uses a Mini DVI port. You will not be able to plug in.

    Right now, I am looking for an adapted to convert mini-dvi to dvi, and do not see one available on Apple.com.
