    Hello all, Carl Hataway here and precluding my question I apologize forthwith for posting a thread that more than likely has been posted before! That said, I will very soon become a Windows Refugee! I am buying a Mac Pro mod. Z0LG-0002, 2X 2.4GHz Xeon E5620 8 core Westmere, 16GB mem, 3X 1TB HDD, ATI HD5870 1GB GDDR5. I want to use 2X 27" monitors, however, don't want to pay $950-$1000.00 per display. I am looking at the HP 2710m monitor w/VGA + DVI-D + HDMI (HDCP) also looking at the 27" Viewsonic and Samsung. Your prolific guidance will be greatly appreciated.

    Those monitors will work, you just need to get the appropriate adapters for it, pending on which graphics card you have and what connection ports it has.

    Don't get the HP 2710m, they're horrible monitors.

    the 5870 has two mini DisplayPort and a DVI connection. you will need an adapter for displays that don't use those connections.
