    I am pretty sure any kind of display works fine as long as you can plug it in!

    Yeah, as long as its got the right plug you're fine. I use a 24" Dell on my Macbook.

    Generally speaking. But the OP asked about a 30" screen, too. A 30" screen with dual-dvi output will only work if you have a dual-dvi video card on your mac pro.

    Then again, I guess that is just another case of "having the right plug".

    With the Mac Pro you will be fine. I believe all of their cards have dual dvi.

    Yeah, from the 7300 GT up. I don't know why you'd have anything less than the 7300 though.

    True, though every Mac Pro (I believe) came/comes with a dual link card. (There is a difference between dual-link DVI and dual DVI.)
