    I have a Dell U2715H. It connects fine to my MBP mid-2009 but I am wondering if it can connect to my desktop Mac Pro 2008. The old cinema display is acting up.

    The monitor's ports are listed here
    2 HDMI(MHL) connector
    1 Mini DisplayPort
    1 DisplayPort (version 1.2)
    1 DisplayPort out (MST)
    1 Audio Line out (connect your speakers)
    5 USB 3.0 ports - Downstream (4 at the back, 1 with battery charging)
    1 USB 3.0 port - Upstream

    In my Mac Pro 2008 the video card (NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT) has two dual-link DVI ports.

    Is it possible, with something like an active DVI to DisplayPort adapter? I know those are sold as DP to DVI, any chance the signal can pass both directions ... ?

    Or I could even use HDMI if I have to.
