Can I work an Apple Display 30 inch with a Quadro 4000 Graphic card?
The Quadro 4000 isn't a capture card. It's a graphics card. If the combination works, you'd need a displayport to dual dvi adapter or cable. A cable would be preferable. You could check monoprice.
Do you mean a Quadro 4000 card for Macs or a Quadro SDI Capture card?
The former will work (maximum output are 2560 x 1600 pixel anyway), the latter requires Windows though and is only meant to capture a signal, not output one to an external display.
Oops, yea sorry, I meant Graphic Card (fixed). What's a displayport exactly? Isn't it the white box that come in the screen box?
A DisplayPort is a video interface for modern GPUs and computer displays.
Most common video interfaces on external computer displays and TVs
Common video interfaces on Macs and the appropriate adapters to connect to other display devices
Do not know, what you mean by that though.
Dropbox currently seems to have a problem with itself.
This is a DisplayPort interface:
Yea, sorry about that, I meant this one: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product-quadro-4000-mac-us.html
So not sure to understand what you meant, it can works but not on Windows?
Oh, ok so this mean that the Apple Display 30 inch isn't a DVI plug?
The Quadro SD Capture card only works in Windows, the Quadro 400 for Mac can also work with Windows, as far as I have gathered.
More info here.
Yea, the one I bought is actually the one for Mac.
I have that card in my early 2008 Mac Pro (3,1) driving a Dell 30" monitor at 2560x1600. Works fine.
I think this may be the oldest Mac Pro model in which this card works.
Look at the Max res for the card 2560x1600
and the optimal res for the Monitor 2560x1600

MacPro 2008 3.1 | 14GB Ram | Quadro 4000 | MC6.0 | OS 10.6.8 | MOTU HDX-SDI | ATTO R644| LaCie 324
Works fine on my HP 30 inch, should work fine on the Apple 30 inch.
It is a bit noisy though.
I would assume he means the fans are loud.
oh, i thought he means some noise on the screen. I preffer your interpretation.
Yes, it has a single small fan that spins up a lot when rendering and gives a high pitched noise, very annoying. Especially when doing sound edits, put the Mac Pro inside a box but this does not help much because of the high pitch.
Might switch to an iMac just for this.
