    I read a few posts that seem to indicate that non-mac monitor cannot display higher them 1680x1200 when connected to a Mac computer. A friend of mine is planing on getting a new mac pro with a 30" Samsung monitor (2560 x 1600). Will he be able to run the monitor a max resolution?

    Any help in the matter will be greatly appreciated.

    Those posts are unequivocally wrong. It will work just fine.

    The 2009 Mac Pro graphics cards (GT120 & Radeon 4870) can drive one 30" display at 2560x1600. If you buy the $99 mini DisplayPort to Dual-link DVI adapter you can drive two.

    Those things are flakier than a leper colony in a sandstorm. Avoid whenever possible
