Hi all,

I am currently in the market for a new monitor, and am looking at Apple's 30" Cinema HD panel. It's a super expensive bit of kit (comes in at like £2000+) but I spend a lot of time using my PC for both work and a bit of gaming, and frankly my eyes are worth considerably more to me than the cost of this panel.

So anyways, before I consider such a purchase I want to know what other kit I am gonna need to get this beast up and running at it's native resolution of 2560x1600.

I have, up to this point, always run desktops rather than workstations, my current rig being a A64 / PCIe / X850XT setup. However IIRC the X850's only support res up to 2048x1536, quite a way off this panel's native.

Can anyone tell me what I would have to add to my current rig to fully utilise this? Some suggestions for GFX cards would be handy, or just some plain old general advice on the subject of large panels n GFX cards.

Cheers ppl

I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, but it was just some b'stard with a torch bringing me more work ...

Some of the ATI FireGL cards will do that. Along with 3Dlabs cards. I don't know if 3Dlabs has PCI-Express cards yet though.
