    Problem 1: I have 12 core 2.4, ATi 5770. I can not get the dual displays to work. I have a 30in ACD and 23in ACD. Tried running the Dual link to the 23in and the regular connector (from MiniDP) doesn't work.

    I also tried the 23in to the DVI which works. So the 23in is fine.

    Tried the 30in ACD to the MiniDP doesn't work.

    I do not no whats going on here, possible a bad video card?

    Problem 2: I installed a Caldigit usb3/esata card into the 5,1. If I leave the Esata G-drive hooked up to the computer during boot up, my keyboard does not work.

    Any help on these issues would be appreciated. :)

    The 30 inch display is either going to need to be connected directly to the DVI port or to the Mini DisplayPort with a 'Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Dual Lunk DVI Adapter'. That is a $99 adapter available from Apple. It is not going to work with a passive Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter as a passive adapter will not support the 2560X1600 resolution required.

    The 23" display you should be able to drive with either port without an issue.

    Thanks for the response. I figured out the display issue. The 30in has to be hooked up to the Dual Link, and the 23in to the DVI connector on the video card.

    I am still having problems with the g-safe hooked up to the Caldigit Esata port.
