    Hi,

    Might sound like a silly/trivial question, but I'm a little stumped.

    I'd like to connect a 1080p regular old secondary display to the above iMac. I think it has a thunderbold (USB-3) port on the back.

    Trouble is, I'm drawing a blank as to which cable to buy. I'm in Canada btw to US links might not help.

    Any help appreciated!

    The best way to connect is through a Mini DisplayPort (thunderbolt) connection, or Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable, allowing for 4K video at 60Hz

    I updated the link. You were correct. If your monitor doesn't have a DP then the one I linked will work.
