    I have a 2009 Mac Pro (8-core, 2.93GHZ, Radeon 4870). I want to drive a 4k/UHD Monitor and a 1080p monitor. The Sapphire Radeon should handle the UHD monitor but can anybody recommend a video card to drive another (possibly 2) 1080p monitors?
    Thanks in advance.

    Big thanks for your reply, MacVidCards.

    What would you recommend for a 4K video editing (FCPX) + Dual Display: one 4K display and one 1080P display?

    Why 4k + 1080P over 2x4k? The 7950 has dual mini-displayports, so it should be no problem.

    NOTE: If you're considering a SST 4k monitor, the current 7950 drivers give some screen corruption above 50Hz in OSX. I believe I saw as posting in the 10.10 beta thread that this was finally fixed, but haven't verified myself or seen others confirm.
