    I am going to be hooking up a Dell U2412M with a 5K iMac. Can someone please recommend the correct adapter to use to be able to utilize this second monitor with the iMac?

    Thanks!

    Any Mini-DP to DP cable should be fine. The cable that I use is made by CE-LINK, which connects my u2412m with a 2011 Mac mini with no problem under OS X.

    Ok so I'm about to pull the trigger on this. Just to be certain, the Dell has a display port and the iMac has a thunderbolt port, which is also called a mini display port?

    Help my confused self, if the above is true, I need a minidp to dp connector? Thanks!!

    Yep, the thunderbolt port on your Mac functions as a mini-DP port when connecting to a DP display, so any mini DP to DP adapter cable should be fine.
