    Any suggestions for the BEST web cam you can get for the mac pro?

    I had the new Apple LED 24" with the new Mac Pro but the monitor did not stack up to my current Doublesight 26" so I sent the LED back. Now I need a web cam.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks.

    Alright so this webcam came in today.
    Out of the box this works with ichat and photobooth. However it doesn't seem to be spitting out anything higher than 640x480 using the /applications/webcam monitor.app. Even with the drivers installed.

    I stuck this on my PC and it looks like I get the same results. So there must be some way to adjust the megapixels in, right?

    The accessories are pretty cool. A USB to audio input and headphone out which shows up as a VoIP device in the audio control panel. Plus a secondary microphone. The camera body itself is solid, but the usb cable is hardwired in, which is kinda annoying.
