    Thanks for your suggestions.

    - Is there a list of Mac / Apple Snow Leopard / Leopard friendly cards somewhere online? On the Mac Pro site I find off late 5770/5870. The cards below or above that series are not visibly listed. I might go in for a CHEAPER older card that works with Dual DVI for starters?

    - Do these cards support Dual-DVI output for the 30" LCD? Or Do I have to go buy one of those MiniDisplay/DisplayPort to Dual-DVI ACTIVE converters? (They've had some real bad reviews).

    - Do these have to be the cards specific for Mac or will the PC versions do? Or will the PC version work with the FLASHING hack (thread I read on here somewhere) to make Non-Mac PC cards work on MacPros.

    - One more question.. Would this work with a notebook even when installed on and driven via a ViDock (if you're familiar with that)?
