Running a 3,1 8core 2.8.
Will the Radeon 5770 accommodate two 30" monitors?
I think you can have 2 30" monitors with Radeon 5770. Though if you connect the other monitor to the mini-display port using a passive adaptor, you maximum resolution is just 1280x800 . I have one 30" monitor and try connecting it to the mini-display port using a passive adaptor and the maximum resolution is only 1280x800. Here is a related link http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3571
One solutiion as people are saying though I have not tried this is to buy an active adaptor lke this one: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A/mini-displayport-to-dual-link-dvi-adapter?fnode=53
Yes; I run three on a single 5770. If they are DVI monitors, such as the Apple 30", you will need two active DisplayPort->dual-link DVI adapters, as mentioned above.
Correct. I have two 30" LP3065 monitors and I don't like this "active" apple DVI adaptor that is necessary when using the 5770. That's why I'm shopping for a card that has two DVI-D outputs.
Yes, it'll be fine.
just pick up the Apple adaptor I've had one now for four years without issue
Can tell me, which Apple adaptor are you using?
When I bought it it was to hook my MBP to a 30" at work. Now I keep it for the times I need to hook My MBP to my 30" ACD.
The Apple MDP->DVI adaptor can be problematic with non-Apple displays & full support is only claimed when used with an Apple Cinema Display. 3rd-party adapters may be more reliable.
I have had good results with that adapter but I have an Apple 30'
