    Hello, just a simple question. I searched around, but I cannot find the answer to this.

    Is it possible to have a PS/2 connector on a MP (I have the MP3,1)? The reason I would like this is for N-Key Rollover for a Filco keyboard I'm going to be getting.

    You'd need an adapter.

    A USB/PS/2 adapter? These disable the NKRO, as PS/2 is required.

    The only way you'll get a ps/2 keyboard hooked up to your MacPro is by a USB PS2 adapter.

    How compatible it turns out may be up to debate, given we're talking about a legacy connector. Personally, I'd say find a good usb based keyboard.
