    I'm getting a MacPro and a Dell ultra sharp monitor and it looks like they will be arriving at the same time. My question is this: Will I be able to connect the monitor to the computer with, hopefully, the supplied cables in the box, or will I need to buy a cable to make the connection.

    You ought to be able to connect to the monitor using the DVI (white) cable that comes with the monitor.

    Infact MacPro has a mini displayport connector, so you will need the required adaptor for it to work. You can purchase this from apple or a 3rd party.

    You're wrong. It has both a mini display port and DVI.

    From Apple Store:

    ATI
    nVidia
