    I have a mac pro 08 model and recently got 2 20" cinema displays and wanted to ask how to connect both monitors because the length of the cable that came nstalled into the monitors are not that long?

    I have 1 connected to the rear ports, but wanted to know if i got usb and firewire hubs if i can hook the monitors to those to make the monitors usb and firewire port(s) active for use?

    or are there any extension cable i can purchase for the monitors?

    thanks!

    get a DVI male to female head extension. you may need a USB extension as well if you want to enable the screen brightness functions on the display. Not sure about the FW though. Maybe FW extensions exist

    ok, cool, thanks!

    when i extend the firewire and usb and dvi, then the plug can go farther away from the computer correct?

    will it be a dvi-d cable?

    ordered them all today!!
