    Hello guys,

    I just bought a second hand (rarely used) 20" ACD from a friend for $100 (she named the price). I currently have my 30" ACD connected to the dual-link port on the 4870. My question is can I get a Mini-display-->DVI adapter and plug in the 20" ACD to the mini-display port on the 4870 without problems?

    Thanks for your input!

    Yes with the use of the adapter you mentioned it will work like a charm. Enjoy the extra screen real estate. :D

    You can save yourself almost $20 over Apple's price at monoprice.
