    Hi all

    I had an Asus 3d monitor and 3d vision kit from when I had a pc. I used to connect it from the graphics card to the monitor using the dual link dvi cable.

    I have boot camp installed and loaded the correct drivers.

    Does anyone know what cable I need for it to work?

    What is the monitor model? What connectors does it have?

    15" Retina models have both HDMI and Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt connectors, others only have the Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt. Which MacBook Pro model do you have?

    Depending on the exact monitor and laptop you have, you most likely need one of these:

    Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI cable/adapter (the one made by Apple would be recommended:Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter)
    Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable
    HDMI cable (only for Retina MacBook Pro, and not possible to use with resolutions larger than 1920x1080 in OS X, in Windows should work with higher resolutions too if your monitor supports it)

    But it's hard to say which one without knowing anything about the monitor or computer in question.
