    Is there a video card for the mac pro 5.1 that does NOT use any external power connectors and supports displayport or minidisplay port? If I go for a gtx680 that uses both of my power headers, I would like to also have a card for boot screens that does not require a power header. My monitor can handle multiple inputs so I like to connect this card for boot screen support.

    Thanks

    You can use a gt120 that Apple has put in the prior generation machines it does not require any connectors from the logic board, it has DVI and Mini-DP connectors on it.

    Your welcome if you have enough posts to see the Marketplace on the forum check it I have seen people selling them in the past there or perhaps start a wanted to buy thread.
