Hello, I am about to make my first Mac purchase and here is what I am eyeing Macpro One 3.33GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon Westmere 8GB (4x2GB) 1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB One 18x SuperDrive I am going with the higher speed six core as opposed to the lower speed dual quad and forfeiting the ablility to upgrade to two processors. By the time I am done with the computer i feel there will be no point to upgrade. Open to suggestions on the specs. My bigger dilemma is the multi-display connections via the dual ATI Radeon HD 5770s. I obviously want to have the ability to connect up to six displays. Each card has a DVI-d dual link and two mini-displayport links. In order to connect three monitors via dvi-d, you have to buy two minidisplay port to dual-link dvi adaptors which cost around $70-$100 each. Despite the fact that I m going to be spending thousands on this setup, this still pisses me off beyond belief. This means for my 6 monitor setup, you are forced into spending hundreds on stupid adaptors. This adaptor probably cost $2 to make in some sweatshop. Using regular displayport to dvi-d adaptors (which cost are $10) limits you to two monitors per each card. Your other options for 3 monitors on each card are one monitor on dvi-d port and two monitors with mini displayport connections from Apple, which are a ripoff as well. I was wondering if anyone has tried connecting one monitor via the dvi-d port and two other monitors using vga. Also, I was wondering if anyone has tried connecting one monitor via dvi-d, and two monitors using mini displayport to displayport connections (there are a few resonable ones from HP and NEC). It really isnt the money, its the fact i feel i am getting pigeonholed into Apples ******** scheme. If i cant use one monitor via dvi-d connector and two via minidisplayport to vga adaptors for each card, i may just set it up using all vga. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
