    Hey guys,

    Im thinking of investing in a decent gaming rig to play the new games, Battlefield 3, MW3, WoW (i know... =[ ) etc...

    I love my 27" cinema display and would love to use it with my gaming rig

    Im guessing i'd have to use a converter/connector to connect the two. something such as this...

    Anyone got any experience doing this or know anyone that does?
    The rig i want costs about $1800 and i'd hate to spend that much and have it not work.


    Cheers in advance

    Don't most high end video cards already have a female mini-DisplayPort connector? I know mine has 2 I believe.

    I bought the EVGA GTX 570 which has a DisplayPort connector on it. The Apple LED Cinema Display 27" (2010) worked with it out of the box. :D
