alright friends, after a long time i finally ordered 2 accell minidisplay to single link dvi ACTIVE adapters for use with my 5770 i got a few months ago. as most of you know you need an active adapter to have more than 2 monitors hooked up to a 5770 or 5870 on a mac, and in order to do this with apple adapters you need to buy 2 dual link dvi adapters at $99 a pop. the accel ones have 2 advantages, one they're only $30 each, and two they dont require a usb port for power. well mine just came and everything works great , so if you're looking for a cheap way to get 3 monitors, go for it. curiously though, and one of the reasons im making this thread, my oldest monitor (only like 4 years old) wasnt recognized when i hooked it up to the adapter and put it in the minidisplay port. no biggie because i just hooked that one up to the dvi port and my other 2 to my mdp's, but is there a reason why it wouldnt be recognized? i was using detect displays and everything. also if anyones looking for a cheap monitor stand tykesupply makes some cheap cheap cheap ones that are very nice. all told 3 monitors, the graphics card upgrade for my 2007 mac pro, and the stand and adapters, it cost me about $650. and man do i love it! also now i can finally install windows via bootcamp because i dont have the x1900 anymore.
