    How can I physically tell the difference? I bought one years ago, but I cannot remember if it is PC flashed or Mac.

    I think that the Mac card is the only one 5770 that has DVI and two mDP ports.

    Thank you. I have the PC version then as it has two DVI ports and only the tooth on the left side, not the whole square support.

    Is there any noticeable difference in quality of output between DVI and mDP? I'm running a Dell U2412M at 1920 x 1200 on DVI and it looks pretty good. Wondering if it's worth buying a mDP --> DP adapter (on a Radeon 5870 with same ports).

    The quality will be identical. The signal is digital. With an analog output (vga) you can see a degraded difference.
