    Does anyone know of a decent arm that I could mount on a desktop for my 27" Thunderbolt display?

    Best video card for secondary monitor.

    I am almost ready to switch from an Mac Pro 1,1 to a 27' Retina iMac and am intending to connect my existing 23" ACD as a secondary monitor. Would it benefit this set up to go for the 4GB video card or is the standard option sufficient. The machine would be used principally for Logic Pro and...
