    Guys
    Is it possible to connect a 27" Ezio Monitor to my 2012 Mac Pro and still be able to use my 27" Mac Monitor.......in other words have two monitors.
    I would like to use the Ezio monitor for my Photography work and the Mac monitor for my email internet etc etc.
    Any help would be much appreciated

    What inputs are on your MacPro? Presumably you have a thunderbolt connection or two? Eizo's ship with a Display port to thunderbolt cable, so just pick one up of Amazon if you can't find it. Same for your Thunderbolt Display.

    Ok. DVi then. Your Eizo again came with one. It's usually white with lots of pins. do you have multiple DVi ports? If so connect your Apple screen to the other one with a thunderbolt to DVi adaptor.

    You have a MacPro5,1 (lucky you!) and your graphic card is either an ATI Radeon HD 5770 or ATI Radeon HD 5870. Both come with 2 - Mini DisplayPort and 1 - dual-link DVI Display connections.
    This computer WILL support 2x 30" (or 27") displays. Enjoy it!
