It's a hardware limitation with mini-display port on certain videocards.
This is in fact limitation of ACD 30, not the mDP

Another option would be an 8800GTS. I replaced my dead 8800GT with one of these and it ran much quieter and cooler due to the larger cooler.

I guess at this point I'd feel more comfortable buying it through a place that will give me the full warranty. So I guess Apple or a reseller, but I can only seem to find a brand new one on Apple and Amazon through a 3rd party seller, not sure their return/warranty on this card (ATI Radeon HD5770).

OWC has it for sale more than the Apple Store!
