Is there anyway to connect a 2008 Mac Pro to the Apple LED Monitor?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was shocked when there was no DVI to Mini DisplayPort cable converters released, practically alienating any Mac products purchased before the release of the Display.

Apple has now updated all their products to be compatible with the monitor... but I'm starting to think Apple has abandoned 2008 Macs for the LED monitor.

monoprice.com is making additional adapters to be released over the next 1-3 months,

but i don't think they are making one that can turn the LED display hookup to a DVI for older systems.

you would have to buy a new video card with the mini port like the ones shipping on the new pros... for $349!

ATI - for early 2008 or 2009
