    Dear All,
    6 weeks ago I bought a Mac Pro Dual Quad 2,66 with an ATI HD 4870 graphic adapter. System is OS X 10.5.7. I try to get an Eizo 30" display (SX 3031W) working with this configuration. Using the signal connector #1 on the Eizo , the display will show up to 2560x1600 resolution (as it should be) but after selecting this option will fall back to 1600x1200 pixel.
    I tried installing on the DVI plug of the card and also on the minidisplay-port using the "Mini Displayport to Dual Link DVI adapter" from Apple but up to now it does not work.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated deepest... :)

    ATI 4870 with Eizo SX3031 - problem solved

    Dear All,
    problem solved:
    It had been the Dual Link DVI cable attached "wrong" side to the Eizo.
    Be sure to use the end with 6 pins more to attach to the monitor, the other end with the pins missing to the graphic card.
    Then it will show a smooth image at 2560x16000.
    In the happy moment of setting up the system I did not look at these tiny detail...
