    Are you sure your (unspecified) ATI card has a DVI connector. If it shipped from the factory with that card then it is most likely and ADC port not a DVI port. ADC is just DVI with extra pins for power. You can pick up an adaptor that will let you use that port with normal DVI displays pretty easily.

    Edit:

    Here's one on the US Apple Store:http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APP...LATObeIc3E74okA2uWyQmAw/1.5.0.5.14.0.5.0.13.0
