    Hey, guys. I just ordered gtx 680 for a mac pro 2010. I noticed that GTX 680 doesn't have mini display port that led-cinema-display-1st-gen-24-inch-2nz-800.jpg

    also I have Apple cinema display....What would I need to connect my display with gtx 680?

    A Display Port to Mini-DisplayPort Adapter.

    And probably extension cables (MiniDisplayPort and USB). The Cable of the Apple Cinema Display is too short when the Mac Pro is under the desk.

    On the table should not be a problem.

    Don't need a USB extension unless it isn't long enough. Mine is definitely long enough and I am running no extensions. I use my 24" ACD with my 2010 Mac Pro + GTX 980 and it works well.

    I guess it wouldn't hurt to get one if I needed a extra length.

    I guess the monitor on the picture is an 27" Cinema Display from 2010. The 27" Apple Cinema Display has a shorter cable than older Apple monitors.
