    Looking at building a PC,

    Would like to be able to use my iMac (late 2010) as a monitor for it.

    I know the iMac will display content from a GPU that has a Mini-DP out,

    What about a GPU with Just regular DisplayPort?

    Not sure if a Displayport>Mini-DP Cable will work, anyone know?

    I'm considering buying an nVidia GTX 670 but it only has DisplayPort, not Mini-DP.


    Thanks in advance.

    It should work with a Displayport to MDP adapter.

    Get a DisplayPort to mini-DisplayPort adapter and it'll work.

    Did it work? If so, did you get full 2560x1440?
