    Hey guys,
    I just got my 2010 3.2Ghz "Quad" Mac Pro. It was a BTO which included the upgraded ATI graphics. I picked up two LG LED displays from Best Buy that are 23". Everything is hooked up but for some reason the secondary display will not display anything. It just flashes "power save mode". I'm using 2 rocketfish DVI to Mini Display ports to hook up to my Mac Pro. Now, I have adjusted all that I can in displays under system preferences trying to modify their arrangement. Any tips or advice?

    errrrr did you read the article?

    "To connect up to two Mini DisplayPort displays and up to a 30-inch DVI display simultaneously, use the ports without any adapters."

    errrrr did you understand the article?

    To connect two DVI displays, use one MiniDP port plus the DVI port.
