    Hello:

    I am ready to install a new NVidia Quadro K5000 for Mac in my not so old Mac Pro 4,1 (2009). I already installed Mountain Lion (10.8.3) as required. The problem is that the Mac Pro came with a Led Cinema Display which apparently only can be connected with a mini DisplayPort plug and the graphics card only have DVi and DP 1.2. I tried to find an adapter but the ones I have find are minidp male to DVI female and obviously I need a minidp female to DVI or DP female.

    I will appreciate any help.

    That's the problem and perhaps the solution! The box contains what the PC version has and the part num is VCQK5000-T. Shoud not it be something like VCQK5000MAC ? I believe they gave us a card for PC instead of a card for MAC, I will return it. Thanks!

    Solved!

    We returned the card (it was a PC card) and two weeks later they gave us the right mac graphics card with the right corresponding things in the box.

    Thanks for your hints!
